About

Professor Noam Pines’ research interests include poetry and poetics; literature and theology; modernism in Hebrew, German, Yiddish and English; and animals in literature. He recently completed the manuscript of his first book, The Infrahuman: Animal Poetics in Modern Jewish Literature. Professor Pines’ current book project, Children of Saturn: Jews and the Roots of Melancholia, examines the notion of melancholia in its relation to Jews and modern Jewish identity by uncovering a constellation in which an entire array of themes and motifs play a part. A native Hebrew speaker, Professor Pines is also fluent in English, German and Yiddish.
