Karl Jacoby

Allan Nevins Professor of American History and Co-Director of the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, Columbia University

Karl Jacoby has devoted his career to understanding the ways in which the making of the United States intertwined with the unmaking of a variety of other societies—from Native American nations to the communities of northern Mexico—and the ecologies upon which they rested. His scholarship is distinguished by its close attention to questions of narrative and storytelling, in-depth micro-historical approach, and border-crossing nature.
