Ofra AmihayI am a lecturer of Hebrew and comparative literature at the University of California, Santa Barbara, interested in Hebrew and comparative literature and visual culture. I have a PhD from New York University, and I am currently in the process of revising my dissertation into a book on photography in Hebrew novels.

I initiated and co-edited The Future of Text and Image, a volume on textual-visual conjunctures in literature and art, and published articles on comics, photography and the novel, biblical motifs in modern narratives, and children’s literature.

My museum experience includes a summer in 2012 as a Scholar in Residence at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, and an internship in the summer of 2013 in the Department of Photography at the Princeton University Art Museum. In the fall of 2015 I curated the exhibition “Text and the City” at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, based on my research there.
