Britt Tevis is a Postdoctoral Associate in the Yale Program for the Study of Antisemitism and a Lecturer in the Humanities Program. She received a PhD in US History from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2016 and a JD from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 2012. Her research focuses on American Jewish and legal history. She is currently completing her first book project, entitled May It Displease the Court: Jewish Legal Networks and the Democratization of American Law.
