Jason Olson is a third year PhD student in Brandeis University's Department of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies. He holds fellowships at The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies and the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise.
Last summer, he was a Research Fellow at the Hertog Global Strategy Initiative at Columbia University, on the topic of Religious Violence and Apocalyptic Movements. There, he worked on the history of Revisionist Zionism's relationship with Evangelical Zionists. That relationship reached its climax in the Menachem Begin-Jerry Falwell friendship.
More generally, Olson has expertise in U.S.-Israel relations, as well as Iranian history and its nuclear program.
He is teaching a course on U.S.-Israel relations to Brandeis undergraduates this fall.
