Dr. Bell is Associate Professor of Literature and Jewish Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz and the recipient of a 2017 Mellon Foundation Grant for his first book, Globalizing Race: Antisemitism and Empire in French and European Culture. His work examines how contemporary upheavals like migration and populism are reconfiguring racisms in Europe, the United States, and South Africa. It also explores how social media is inducing us to rethink the relationship between structural racism and individual prejudice.
