2. Special Session: “Israeli Culture from a Transnational Perspective: Influences”

For this session we welcome papers that examine the reception of international literature/film within Israel: how has Hebrew literature engaged with other literary traditions? What connections have been identified by scholars thus far (e.g. Agnon/Flaubert, Yehoshua/Faulkner, Kahana-Carmon/Woolf)?
