Taking a “critical” or “progressive” approach to Language and Literature inquiry, my scholarship most broadly encompasses Layers of Hebrew Language and Literature (Biblical texts and Aramaic targum texts; medieval, modern and contemporary Hebrew belles lettres: poetry, literature); complex relationships in contemporary literature of Israel; women’s self-writing, life writing, ; verbal self-portraiture and écriture feminine; research in teaching & learning in Jewish schools; adolescents’ & children’s literature.
