Bio/Research

My work centers on Jewish communities and on the dynamics of Jewish culture, memory and identity. I have investigated these fields in a range of ethnographic projects set in Paris, Jerusalem, and the Lower East Side of New York City. Much of my work is in interdisciplinary critical theory, almost always from the perspective of modern Jewish politics and experience. I have extended these interests into comparative work on diaspora, the politics of time and space, and the ethnography of reading. I am also a Yiddish translator.
