  • Bio

    Annalise Glauz-Todrank’s scholarship focuses on the intersections of religion, race, and law in the configuration of Jewish identification, particularly in the modern period. She investigates how these socially constructed categories become normalized, instantiate institutional inequalities, and shape conceptions of the self and the other. Currently, she is completing a manuscript entitled Judging Jewish Identity in the United States, in which she examines the 1987 U.S. Supreme Court case that provided race-based civil rights protection to Jewish Americans for the first time. Recent publications include articles in Religion CompassCritical Research on Religion, and Who Is a Jew?: Reflections on History, Religion, and Culture, edited by Leonard Greenspoon. She has a forthcoming chapter in Race with Jewish Ethics entitled “Jewish Critical Race Theory and Jewish ‘Religionization in Shaare Tefila Congregation v. Cobb.” She serves on the American Ethnic Studies and Jewish Studies Program councils at Wake Forest University, and she is a member of the Law, Religion, and Culture committee at the American Academy of Religion. Her classes include Introduction to Jewish Traditions, Approaches to the Study of Religion, Jewish Identities: Religion, Race, and Rights, Jews in the United States, and Modern Jewish Movements. Previously, she taught at Wesleyan University as a postdoctoral scholar, from 2010-2012, and at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where she earned her Ph.D. in Religious Studies. Her B.A. is from Hampshire College.
