Jordan Molot

Thesis supervisor: Naftali Cohn

Thesis title: Beyond the Canadian-Jewish Experience: Transatlantic Bonds of Jewish Settlers in Canada, 1760-1834

Jordan Molot is a second-year PhD student in the Department of Religions and Cultures and the Naim Mahlab Fellow at the Concordia Institute for Canadian Jewish Studies. Prior to his doctoral work, he completed an MA in Judaic Studies (Concordia, 2021) and a BA in Psychology and Religious Studies (Ottawa, 2019). He has presented in conferences across the United States and Canada, and has served as Chair of the Annual Graduate Interdisciplinary Conference since 2020.

His current research explores 18th-century mercantile and religious networks between early Jewish settlers in Canada with other communities throughout the Atlantic worlds. Using a interdisciplinary methodology (primarily queer and decolonial critical frameworks), Jordan seeks to reconsider the place of the early modern period within broader narratives of Jewish-Canadian life.
