Adriana Mariel Brodsky is a professor of history at Saint Mary's College of Maryland. Her first book, Sephardi, Jewish, Argentine: Community and National Identity, 1880-1960 focused on how the Sephardim resisted their minority status within the largely Ashkenazic Jewish Argentine community and its organizations and defended their individual identities. She has published articles on Sephardic women and female philanthropic organizations in Argentina. Her interests include the Sephardic communities in Argentina, Sephardic women, Zionist female organizations in Argentina, and issues of identity.
