Dr. Yoav Fromer is the head of the newly-founded Center for the Study of the United States at Tel Aviv University and a fellow in the School of Government and Diplomacy. He is also a Visiting Lecturer at Yeshiva University in New York.
He is a graduate of Columbia University (Magna Cum Laude) and holds a PH.D in Politics and History from The New School for Social Research in New York (with Honors). He is also a member of Phi Beta Kappa Honors Society.
An academically trained intellectual historian and political theorist, Dr. Fromer's research explores the relationship between politics and culture and focuses primarily on modern American Liberalism, Conservatism, and Foreign Policy. Instilled with a strong interdisciplinary bent, both his research and teaching transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries and incorporate a variety of methods and perspectives from the social sciences and the humanities. Accordingly, he teaches in the social science and humanities departments an array of courses about American foreign policy, history, politics and literature, as well as broader introductory courses in the Liberal Arts about the history of western political thought and literature.
