Print and the Hebrew Narrative: Hebrew Literature in Early Modernity


David Rotman is Teaching Fellow at Tel Aviv University and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. He has several forthcoming publications on medieval and early modern Ashkenazi Hebrew folktales, as well as a co-edited special issue of The Jewish Quarterly Review entitled “The Hebrew Story in the Middle Ages.” In his research at the center, Rotman intends to examine early modern Hebrew prose as a holistic phenomenon, tracing its meanings back to its themes, forms, and reception but also, and especially, to its printed media.
