Albert Evan Kohn
Albert Evan Kohn, originally from Philadelphia, USA, is a research associate at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a member of the Beyond the Elite team. He completed his undergraduate work at the Jewish Theological Seminary and Columbia University and an MPhil at the University of Cambridge before moving to Jerusalem. His work explores the diverse set of ideas, activities and people which animated domestic life in the cities of medieval France and Germany. His project considers how the home was understood and functioned as a potential meeting ground for Jews and Christians who entered one another’s houses to work, conduct business, or spend time together. His current publications examine the domestic rituals of bedtime prayer and table singing.
