Joseph Benatov holds a doctorate in comparative literature and literary theory from the University of Pennsylvania. His dissertation is entitled "Looking in the Iron Mirror: Eastern Europe in the American Imaginary, 1958-2001." He has also written on Jewish identity politics in Philip Roth's early fiction; the sensationalism of U.S. representations of life behind the Iron Curtain; and competing national narratives of the saving of the Bulgarian Jews during World War II. Dr. Benatov has taught Hebrew for a number of years and has also translated Israeli poetry and drama, including a play by Hanoch Levin, staged to wide acclaim in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Topic: Jewish Life in Bulgaria
