I am an Israel Institute postdoctoral fellow at Georgetown University, interested in comparative literature and photography. As a literary scholar, I am especially interested in Hebrew, American, German and French novels, focusing on themes of visuality and immigration. As a photography scholar, I have a particular interest in text and image relations, from documented text in urban landscape photography, to staged or even imposed texts in photographs.
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 a volume on textual-visual conjunctures in literature and art, and published articles on comics and graphic novels, relations between photography and the novel, modern adaptations of biblical stories, 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 will curate an exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, based on my research there.
