Yael Halevi-Wise is Associate Professor of English and Jewish Studies at McGill University and author of Interactive Fictions: Scenes of Storytelling in the Novel (2006), an analysis of storytelling acts in which characters argue about how to tell a story, and Sephardism: Spanish Jewish History in the Modern Literary Imagination (2013), which demonstrates that a preoccupation with the history of the Jews expelled from Spain nourishes modern literary representations of national identity from Scott’s Ivanhoe onwards. She is now working on a critical study of the Israeli author, A. B. Yehoshua. Dickens remains a lifelong passion and central focus of her teaching interests.
