About the Author

Zohar Weiman-Kelman is Assistant Professor in the Department of Foreign Literatures and Linguistics at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel.


"...the book contributes to research in women literary studies and is a valid example of applying queer theory." - Journal of Modern Jewish Studies

"...more bold and far-reaching in its claims and aims than many of its precursors ... Through her construction of a cross-temporal and cross-linguistic genealogy of Jewish women's poetry, Weiman-Kelman collapses the boundaries between theory and praxis in her own work, showing how scholarship can be a locus for political change." - In Geveb: A Journal of Yiddish Studies

"Queer Expectations is one of the most original books of literary analysis, historiography, biography, and queer theory I have ever read. Its originality and its methodology turn traditional ways of thinking about literary analysis, questions of influence, and what queer can mean upside down. This is a truly brilliant book." - Evelyn Torton Beck, editor of Nice Jewish Girls: A Lesbian Anthology, Revised and Updated Edition
