Like other immigrants, many Israeli expatriates find themselves asking how they can maintain their culture on American soil. But what happens when their children learn their heritage language in American educational settings? In this session, Hannah Kober will discuss the surprising finding from her recent research that the long-held narrative about Israeli-Americans as producers of Hebrew language education, and not as consumers, needs reconsideration.

Hannah Kober is a Ph.D. Candidate in Educational Linguistics and Jewish Studies at Stanford Graduate School of Education. Her research and writing span issues in heritage language learning within and beyond Jewish educational settings. Based in New Haven, CT, Hannah is a Jim Joseph Fellow and Wexner Graduate Fellow-Davidson Scholar.
