This site invites dialogic thought and creativity, by opening a window to poetry, music, painting, photography, personal narratives and the unknown that shall be discovered as the dialogue flows.  

I am a poetess and researcher of Judeo-Spanish (Ladino) culture and literature, folklore and Hebrew literature.

 
I had written extensively on varied issues of Judeo-Spanish studies, from traditional folk literature to the analysis of what she defined as "the Sephardic digital homeland".  Special emphasis in given in my work to the Sephardic Holocaust.

Poetry
Research
Other parts of my research focus on the personal narrative, offering new methods for the analysis of it as both a collective and an individual phenomenon, and on the meeting between Hebrew and the Jewish langauges in contemporary Hebrew poetry and prose.

Deriving from a belief that cultural and creative processes convey a multitude of voices, even when representing an individual, both my poetry and my research are multi-layered and multi-faceted in nature.

Questions of identity, memory and reflexivity
are in the heart of my ceative and the scholarly journey.
