I am pleased to inform that on October 2010 I have submitted my PhD dissertation on the topic of "The Embodiment of Jewish Textual Tradition in Theatre and Drama". Besides that, my book "The Holy Tongue, Comedy's Version" has been published this year by Bar-Ilan University Press, as part of the "Interpretation and Culture" book series:

I have also published several papers in English and Hebrew on Jewish-Italian theatre in the Renaissance, Hebrew theatre in the early twentieth century, and contemporary Israeli theatre.

I am currently teaching at the theatre departments of Tel Aviv University and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
