About Me

I am an Alon Fellow (2008-2011) and Chair of the English Department at the Hebrew University. My articles on modernism have appeared in numerous journals including Journal of Modern Literature, Modern Fiction Studies, Poetics Today, Modernism/modernityJoyce Studies Annual, Partial Answers, Humanities, and Narrative. I have also contributed chapters to collaborative volumes on Deleuze and Literature, on Deleuze and Beckett, and on Posthumanism. I am the author of The Measureless Time of Joyce, Deleuze and Derrida (2007), and of Fantasies of Self-Mourning: Modernism, the Posthuman and the Finite (2019); and co-editor of two volumes on Flann O'Brien: Flann O’Brien: Contesting Legacies (listed in The Irish Times top 10 non-fiction books of 2014), and Flann O'Brien: Problems with Authority (2017). My research interests include Irish Modernism (especially James Joyce), twentieth-century philosophy (especially the work of Gilles Deleuze), and the influence of Dante on modernist writers.
