About Me

I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1983 and taught at Princeton University and the University of California at Davis before coming to Israel. I was a Fulbright Fellow at the Hebrew University in 1991-92 and directed the University of California's Education Abroad Program from 1994-1996. I have been teaching at Bar-Ilan since 1997. My research has focused on Jewish and Jewish American literature, particularly on the question of assimilation and on theories of Jewish literature. I have been involved in the Shaindy Rudoff Graduate Program in Creative Writing at Bar-Ilan since its inception, and have been active in various literary projects, such as the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature and Kisufim: The Jerusalem Conference for Jewish Writers and Poets.
