Brendan Goldman is a historian of the Jewish communities of the medieval Islamic world and a specialist in the documents of the Cairo Geniza. He served the past two years (2018-2020) as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Program in Judaic Studies at Princeton University, where he coordinated the Comparative Diplomatics Workshop and taught at Northern State Prison, Newark, NJ. He received his Ph.D. in history from The Johns Hopkins University in 2018.

Brendan’s first book, “Camps of the Uncircumcised: The Cairo Geniza and Jewish Life in the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem,” is under contract with University of Pennsylvania Press and forthcoming in 2021. His second book project, tentatively titled “A Disciplinary Society: Medieval Prisons through Jewish Eyes, 1000-1300,” examines how Cairo Geniza documents can illuminate the ways state violence shaped the lives of everyday people during the Middle Ages.
