Subject: The Speech of Rabshakeh (2 Kgs 18: 19-35) – The voice of the defeated 

Supervisor: Dr. Nili Vazana

Abstract: During my bible studies, I became aware that the biblical narrative often tells its stories from the “defeated” point of view. In my opinion What most deserves examination within the narrative is how the “defeated” perspective chooses to describe its opposition, often those being the victors. I would like to focus on a literary unit that takes unique perspective on these issues – Rabshakeh’s speech (2 Kgs 18: 19-35) within the story of Sennacherib’s campaign to Judah (2 kgs 18:17-19:19). In my research I would also look to examine different questions: Who is Rabshakeh? Does his speech reflect a literary work or is it possible to find evidence that reflects an actual historical event? Is the speech able to reveal to us a connection with Assyrian propaganda and its influence? Is it possible to find within the speech evidence of beliefs and opinions prevalent at the time? and the relation between this unit to additional versions. These are only a few examples of the questions that will arise while reading and, in turn, require a full examination. I would like to examine the literary unit, expose its various sources, the language, literary means, historical context and its unique characteristics.

Subject: On the Discourse of Unity and the Discursive Unity of the Ma‘arekhet ha-elohut

Supervisor: Dr. Avishai Bar-Asher

Abstract: Ma’arekhet ha-ehlohut, though a foundational kabbalistic work, remains largely understudied. In past scholarship it has been argued that the work is composed of two distinct strata, each reflecting a distinct stage in the author's development from kabbalist to philosopher. In my research I would like to reexamine this in light of the idea that philosophy and Kabbalah were deeply integrated in this period.

Subject: The Language of Avot Yeshurun - a Linguistic-Intertextual View

Abstract:   My main field of interest is Modern Hebrew Poetry, which I study from a linguistic point of view and by using literary theory. My MA thesis examined the linguistic characteristics and stylistic choices of Avot Yeshurun’s early poetry. I have demonstrated how Yeshurun used registers of pre-existent Hebrew texts, how contemporary poets influenced him, and how he began to form his unique style. For the research of the latter, I have compared manuscripts of his poems. In my PhD dissertation, under the supervision of Prof. Elitzur Bar-Asher Siegal and Dr. Roy Greenwald (BGU), I will concentrate on writing a full linguistic description of Yeshurun's poetry. In addition I will study how Yeshurun implemented a linguistic ideology of using spoken language and dialects in his writing, that have no official written representation in Hebrew.

Another poet that I find interest in her writing is Hedva Harechavi. I have initiated the first academic conference dedicated to her work that took place in April 2021 at the Hebrew University. Writing about these two poets, I integrate topics that are part of the broader research of Hebrew Literature and its language – such as the influences of ancient Hebrew periods on the language of Modern Hebrew Poetry, or literary editing as a process towards an integration of one's poetic style.
