The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University invites you to a presentation by Maya Dworsky-Rocha, a doctoral student in the Department of Anthropology at Brandeis University. Dworsky-Rocha studies the intersectionality of childhood and race through the lens of children’s literature. A graduate of the Comparative Humanities (MACH) program, Dworsky-Rocha’s capstone project, “White Kids Fight Dragons, Black Kids Fight Drugs,” dealt with the lack of heroes of color in children’s transformative literature.

In her doctoral work she continues her research into the use of pedagogical narrative in the formation of ethnic and national identities not only in the U.S., but also in Israel and Palestine. Dworsky-Rocha is a Schusterman Doctoral Fellow at the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies.
