Cliopatria Welcomes Mechal Sobel ...



Cliopatria welcomes Mechal Sobel to our groupblog. Her doctorate is from Boston University. She teaches history and directs the Graduate Program in American Studies and the Center for the Study of the United States at Israel's University of Haifa. Professor Sobel has been active in international American Studies conferences both at Haifa and in Milan, Italy. Her books include: Trabelin' On, a pioneering interpretation of the"sacred cosmos" of 18th and 19th century American Afro-Baptists, The World They Made Together (Princeton University Press, 1989), an interpretation of 18th century Virginia as a bi-racial society, and Teach Me Dreams: The Search for Self in the Revolutionary Era (Princeton University Press, 2002), a close study of the role that race played in the dream world of late colonial Americans. More recently, Professor Sobel's interests have turned to the Alabama folk artist, Bill Traylor (ca 1853/55 - 1949). Cliopatria is honored to welcome its first international group member, particularly one who brings such distinction to our ranks.
