I came to Queen’s as a specialist in Israeli, and to a lesser extent, Palestinian cinemas.  I studied nationalism, gender and militarism, and expanded my work to include photography, and news media.  At Queen’s I found a department especially supportive of combining theory and practice, and I soon merged my filmmaking background (a BFA from Tel-Aviv University and an MFA from Syracuse University) with my theoretical interests (PhD from Alberta).  I developed a series of short videos, which I called DiaDocuMEntaRy, and in which I tried to address political questions, especially about the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, while also addressing authority and voice in documentary filmmaking. 

Research Interests: Nationalism, gender, militarism and film making.

Courses Taught: Not currently teaching in Jewish Studies.
