Zohar Weiman-Kelman is an incoming fellow at the Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania and an associate scholar at the Penn Humanities Forum on Sex. Zohar recently completed a first book manuscript, What to Expect When You’re Not Expecting: Queer Histories of Jewish Women Writers. The book brings together poetry in Yiddish, Hebrew, and English from 1880 to 1990, with queer theories of temporality. Zohar’s new project, Philology, Sexology, and the Future of Yiddish, looks at intersections of Yiddish language and sexuality. Zohar held the Anne Tanenbaum Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Centre for Jewish Studies at the University of Toronto and was a postdoctoral teaching fellow at the University of Haifa.
