Modern U.S. history; labor history; history of political thought; history of capitalism
Daniel Judt is a PhD student in modern U.S. history. His research focuses on the relationship between labor struggles and leftist political thought in twentieth-century America. He is especially interested in the material foundations of American pragmatism. Daniel received a BA in history from Yale in 2018 and an MPhil in political theory from Oxford in 2020. Prior to beginning his PhD, he worked as a political organizer with UNITE HERE Local 11, a hospitality-workers union in California and Arizona, where he helped to develop a workers’ education program for union members.
