About me

Dr. Liran Yadgar, the UCLA Viterbi Visiting Professor in Mediterranean Jewish Studies/Postdoctoral Scholar, earned his B.A. and M.A. from Tel Aviv University, and received his Ph.D. from the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago in 2016. His research examines the history of Jewish communities in the Mamluk Sultanate of Egypt and Syria (1250-1517), and Jewish-Muslim interaction and intellectual exchange during the Late Middle Islamic Period. He currently is working on his first book about the representations and knowledge of Jews, Judaism, and the Hebrew Bible in the works of two prominent theologians of fourteenth-century Damascus, Ibn Taymiyya and Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya. Prior to his appointment at UCLA, Dr. Yadgar served as the Jacob and Hilda Blaustein Postdoctoral Associate in the Judaic Studies Program of Yale University.
