Please join us for “Learning About Learning: A Conversation with Professor Sharon Avni” on “Accentuating the American Jewish Hebrew Speaker.” This conversation will focus on Sharon Avni’s recent work on how the everyday acts of speaking, learning and engaging with modern Hebrew inform our understanding of contemporary American Jewish life.
Professor Sharon Avni (CUNY) is an applied linguist whose research on language, religion and education draws on a range of academic traditions and theoretical frameworks, including linguistic anthropology, historical analysis and cultural studies.
She is also a research affiliate at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education at Brandeis University, where she worked with Sarah Benor (HUC) and Jonathan Krasner (Brandeis University) on the “Hebrew at North American Jewish Overnight Summer Camps” project.
