Alan Singer, a suburban Chicago native, earned his B.A. and M.A. from Northern Illinois University and his Ph.D. in British history from the University of Missouri. His research focuses on how cultural representations of Jews were used to criticize the development of political and economic liberalism in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. His current project examines how the populist journalist, William Cobbett (1763-1835) evoked anti-Jewish stereotypes in an effort to discredit advocates of British capitalism. Alan has taught European and British history at the University of Missouri, Stephens College and Marquette University. He also coordinates and provides information for scholarship programs for the Honors College.
