Her current research interests focus on comparative intellectual history and Russian religious philosophy. Her latest book is New Myth, New World : From Nietzsche to Stalinism (Penn State U. Press, 2002). She also serves on several editorial boards and has appeared in on-camera interviews for a show on Ivan the Terrible for A&E's Biography Series.

Dr Rosenthal’s  current project is a comparative study of cultural trends in prerevolutionary Russia (1890-1917) and in the United States since the 1960s.  The study points out the amazing parallels in countries that were otherwise so different.

Her undergraduate and graduate courses focus on Tsarist and twentieth-century Russia , European intellectual history, and religion and revolution. She is also planning new courses on women in Russian history, food in history, and occultism in European history.
