I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Haifa, Israel, specializing in Victorian literature and culture, the theory and history of the novel, law and literature, literary realism, and fictionality.
My work draws on a wide array of interests an approaches, and strives to be truly multi- and inter-disciplinary. In addition to a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature (The University of California, Berkeley, 2005)
I also hold a law degree (LL.B., The Hebrew University, Jerusalem, 1994).
Additional research and teaching interests also include imperialism and its legacies, the South Asian novel in English, and post-colonial, queer, and narrative theory.
My work has been published or is forthcoming in, among others, The Cambridge Companion to Anthony Trollope; Nineteenth-Century Literature; The Journal of Law, Culture, and the Humanities; and Modern Fiction Studies. I have recently completed a manuscript entitledCommon Precedents: Presenting the Past in Victorian Law and Literature.
