I have published on Jewish-American Holocaust literature and postmemory: “Living in the Presence of an Absence. The Puzzling Holocaust Legacy of the American Post- Holocaust Generation” in Ricognizioni. Rivista di Lingue e Letterature Straniere e Culture Moderne; and “‘Radiant Darkness Leaked out Through Her Crack:’ Cracked Families and Leaking Trauma in Michael Chabon’s Moonglow” in CoSMo – Comparative Studies in Modernism. Upcoming for RIAS – Review of International American Studies: “Placing Time, Timing Space. Memory as Border and Line of (Hi)Stories in Richard McGuire’s Graphic Narrative Here.”
