.Let me, dear visitor to my site, introduce myself to you

Since the eighties and for more than 35 years I am teaching modern Arabic literature in the department of Arabic and Islamic Studies at Tel Aviv University.

I have been interested in different genres of modern Arabic literature: novel, short story, poetry and criticism in different areas of Arab world, with special emphasis on Palestinian literature, youth writing, women’s writing and marginal literature in general.

I have been writing nine books and dozens of articles in Arabic, English and Hebrew.

My recent study is focusing on Title in literature.
