Ph.D. New York University, 2006
Hebrew and Judaic Studies
I write about historiography, polemics, and gender. My first book is a critical edition of Abraham Ibn Daud’s Dorot Olam (Brill, 2013), and my current project looks at gender variance in medieval Hebrew texts.
I received my Ph.D. from New York University, after studies in Germany, the UK, and Israel. I have been teaching at the University of South Carolina since 2008, after holding a Weinstein Post-Doctoral Fellowship and, concurrently, an Honorary Fellowship at the Institute for Research in the Humanities, UW-Madison. I will be on a sabbatical in 2015/16. You can reach me via email, and on academia.edu.
