Jordy Silverstein

 

Jordana Silverstein is an ARC Postdoctoral Associate with the ARC Laureate Fellowship Project 'Child Refugees and Australian Internationalism: 1920 to the Present', led by Professor Joy Damousi. As part of this project, Jordana is investigating the history of Australian Government policy directed towards child refugees from 1970 to the present.

Her previous research has focused on questions of belonging, nationalism, identity, historiography, sexuality and memory, which she has primarily investigated through the lens of Australian Jewish history.

Her book, 'Anxious Histories: Narrating the Holocaust in Jewish Communities at the Beginning of the Twenty First Century' is published by Berghahn Books (2015), and she has also co-edited a volume entitled 'In the Shadows of Memory: The Holocaust and the Third Generation' (Vallentine Mitchell, 2016).
