Judith Friedlander is a Professor of Anthropology at Hunter College in New York City.[1] She is the Acting Director of Academic Programs and former Dean of Roosevelt House, as well as the former dean of The New School.[2]

Anthropology[edit]

Friedlander received a PhD from the University of Chicago in 1973.[3] She is best known for her 1975 work Being Indian in Hueyapan,[4] a study of indigenous Latin American life and culture in Hueyapan, Mexico, and her 1990 Vilna on the Seine about Jewish intellectuals in France.[5][6] In the late 2010s, Friedlander worked on a book on the history of Columbia's New School entitled A Light in Dark Times: The New School for Social Research and Its University in Exile, released in February 2019.[7] In the 1930s and 1940s, a group of Jewish scholars, mostly from Germany and France, and mostly social scientists, came to the US as refugees and began working at the New School. A number of these scholars, particularly those with expertise in politics, social theory and economic policy, went on to serve in the Roosevelt Administration.[7]
