Bio

Professor Greenberg has taught at Trinity for most of her career, with a few brief stints elsewhere (University of Helsinki, Finland; Columbia University; Harvard University; Nankai University, China). She teaches courses in African American history and the history of race in the U.S., as well as courses on many social and cultural history topics including crime, protest movements, Star Trek, and American society during and after the Cold War. Professor Greenberg’s research interests are equally varied, ranging from African American communities during the Great Depression to grass-roots organizing in the Civil Rights movement, and from postwar liberalism to Black-Jewish relations. Her current long-term projects include a history of civil rights organizations’ views about “hate speech” legislation, and another tracing shifting African American attitudes toward gay marriage.She is also editing the memoir of a civil rights worker in Marks, Mississippi.
