In recent years I have been a Visiting Scholar in the Department of History and Civilization of European University Institute, Florence (Italy) and a Professeur Associé at the Université Paris VII—Denis Diderot (France). Currently I serve serve on the Executive Committee and am a member of the Board of Governors of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives (ALBA) at NYU.
