Harold is interested in late-twentieth-century Central European history and its connection to the history of neoliberalism.  His research will focus on the role of dissidents and émigrés who crossed the Iron Curtain into the West and how their experiences, both before and after emigrating, informed their politics and their participation in the formation of neoliberal thought. Harold holds a BA in Philosophy from Reed College and a MA in History from the University of Chicago.
