Guy Ehrlich (Ph.D., Tel Aviv University, 2021) is a postdoctoral fellow at the Crown Family Center for Jewish and Israel Studies at Northwestern University. In the past year (2021-2022) he was an Einstein Foundation postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Hebrew Literature at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His Ph.D. dissertation is a monographic study of Israeli author Yehudit Hendel (1921-2014); and his current project focuses on Lea Goldberg’s shelved novel Avedot (Losses), which was written during the mid-late 1930s, but first published only in 2010. He is interested in modern Hebrew literature, Israeli culture, gender studies, and feminist and queer theory. His articles were published in Mikan: Journal for Literary Studies (2019), Jewish Social Studies (2020), Ot: A Journal of Literary Criticism and Theory (2021), and Shofar (forthcoming, 2024). His book manuscript – titled The Empty Places of Yehudit Hendel – has recently won the Yaacov Bahat Prize for Best Original Scholarly Book Manuscript in Hebrew (2022).
