Dr. Anat Rosenberg completed her LL.B. magna cum laude at the Hebrew University, and her PhD in 2011 at the Tel Aviv University direct doctoral course. Between 2017 and 2020 she had been a visitor at the Faculty of History, the University of Cambridge and the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, the University of London, as well as Wolfson College and thereafter Emmanuel College, the University of Cambridge. She has been a research fellow at the Sacher Institute for Legislative Research and Comparative Law, 2010-11, and a visiting fellow at Columbia University 2006-07.
Dr. Rosenberg’s research uses methodologies of cultural legal history, law and the humanities, and law and literature. She has recently completed a book on the cultural legal history of advertising in Britain in the first era of mass consumption, c. 1840-1914 (to be published in September 2022). New research projects include an international research network on enchantment in the history of capitalism; an edited collection on law and the material turn; and a creative workshop series on law and advertising.
