giulia miller picI am Affiliated Lecturer in Modern Hebrew at the University of Cambridge.

My research focuses broadly upon representations of built and natural environments in Modern Hebrew literature and more specifically upon the interrelationship between nature and culture that is depicted in this literature.

My project spans over a century of Modern Hebrew fiction and includes texts by M.Y. Berdichevsky, S.Y. Abramovitch, A.B. Yehoshua, Orly Castel-Bloom, Adi Ben Artzi, Haviva Pedaya and Assaf Gavron. It traces shifting perceptions of the Jewish subject’s relationship to his or her environment and considers the significance of this relationship as it alternates between the symbolic, the metaphoric, the metonymic and the ‘real’.
