Thaddeus Atzmon joined the Mount Mercy faculty in 2020 and will complete his PhD in sociology from Texas A&M University in 2020.

While at Texas A&M University, Atzmon taught a wide range of courses, including Introduction to Sociology, Social Problems, Social Theory, and Social Research Methods. He was nominated and selected to be a graduate teaching fellow at Texas A&M University Center for Teaching Excellence due to his consistent record of providing excellent teaching and learning experiences. 

Atzmon’s research focuses on Jewish gentile relations in the United States historically and today. Specifically, he seeks to better understand how Jews are framed in the minds of gentiles in the United States before, during, and after the second world war. His research also explores racialized antisemitism, gendered antisemitism, and how white gentiles in the United States interpret white supremacist events.  He also broadly studies the history and current manifestations of white supremacy and white nationalism in the United States to promote a more just and anti-racist world.   

Atzmon is a member of the American Sociological Association. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his partner and family, reading by the fireplace, playing with his three dogs and two cats, and rebuilding cars.
