I study ideologies of childhood and education, in medieval and contemporary literature. My dissertation examines Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) Jewish children’s literature and education of the late twentieth century. I also work on ideologies of childhood and education in medieval British texts and medieval Hebrew Ashkenazi texts, as well as the Bais Yaakov Project¬†with support from the New Media Lab.

I earned my BA in English Literature with a minor in Classical Studies from the City College of New York.

The kids are the future. And the past.
