Jude Webre - Brooklyn Institute for Social Research

Jude Webre

Jude Webre recently completed his Ph.D. in History at Columbia University and has taught courses at Columbia and for the Brooklyn Institute in U.S. History, American Studies, and Literature Humanities. His work explores the intersection of 20th-century American cultural and political history with modern intellectual history, with a particular interest in the relationship of poetry, aesthetic pragmatism, and cultural democracy. His dissertation examines the reception and adaptation of European literary modernism into American culture from World War I to the early Cold War, inflected by radical democratic political movements and the social transformations of the two world wars. Besides his scholarly life, Jude has also been a performing rock and jazz musician for over twenty years.
