A discussion moving between present and Ottoman past on Jerusalem and tracing the exclusionary battles over it today to longer term policies and developments.

Michelle Campos Associate Professor of Jewish Studies and History at Penn State is a scholar of 19th and early 20th century Jewish Studies and Middle Eastern history whose work is grounded in and contributes to three complementary and overlapping subfields: 1) the history of Palestine and Israel; 2) the history of the late Ottoman Empire and the making of the modern Middle East; and 3) Sephardic Jewish studies.

Because I see the history of Ottoman Palestine as inextricably linked to the history of the rest of the empire and the Eastern Mediterranean (al-Mashriq), my work shifts between urban, regional, and imperial scales. Likewise, my approach to intercommunal history is deeply relational, and to that end I approach Jews, Muslims, and Christians in the same conceptual, temporal, and spatial frame.

Over the last decade I have delved into exciting frontier of the digital humanities, particularly mapping and social networks, which I incorporate into my research and teaching.
