Emily Gioielli is a historian of modern European history, with a special focus on Central and Eastern European history, the history of gender and sexuality, and the history of violence. I am currently finishing a social history that traces women's involvement and the role of gender in the social and political revolutions that took place in Hungary during the long World War One period. I am also working on a project that brings together the social and environmental history of the Holocaust in Central Europe entitled "Cataclysm: An Environmental History of the Holocaust in Central Europe." I teach courses on modern European history and contemporary European studies, gender, sexuality and women's studies, and the history of violence and genocide.
