Naomi Brenner

Assistant Professor

Professor Naomi Brenner specializes in modern Hebrew, Yiddish, and Arabic literature. Dr. Brenner’s dissertation and published articles deal with the manner in which Hebrew and Yiddish authors portray themselves and their culture in their writing. She has a special interest in authors who began their careers writing in another language — Yiddish or Arabic — and made the complex linguistic and personal transition to Hebrew authorship in Israel. Professor Brenner is also Director of Ohio State’s Hebrew language program.
