Poetic Thinking Today

Amir Eshel
Stanford University Press, 2019 November 30, 2019

Thinking is much broader than what our science-obsessed, utilitarian culture often takes it to be. More than mere problem solving or the methodical comprehension of our personal and natural circumstances, thinking may take the form of a poem, a painting, a sculpture, a museum exhibition, or a documentary film. Exploring a variety of works by contemporary artists and writers who exemplify poetic thinking, this book draws our attention to one of the crucial affordances of this form of creative human insight and wisdom: its capacity to help protect and cultivate human freedom.

The German-Hebrew Dialogue: Studies of Encounter and Exchange (Perspectives on Jewish Texts and Contexts)

Amir Eshel (ed.), Rachel Seelig (ed.)
De Gruyter Mouton, 2018 February 9, 2018

In the wake of World War II and the Holocaust, it seemed there was no place for German in Israel and no trace of Hebrew in Germany — the two languages and their cultures appeared as divergent as the directions of their scripts. Yet when placed side by side on opposing pages, German and Hebrew converge in the middle. Comprised of essays on literature, history, philosophy, and the visual and performing arts, this volume explores the mutual influence of two linguistic cultures long held as separate or even as diametrically opposed.

Making Reading Visible: Social Annotation with Lacuna in the Humanities Classroom

Emily Schneider, Stacy Hartman, Amir Eshel, Brian Johnsrud
The Journal of Interactive Technology & Pedagogy, 2016 June 16, 2016

Reading, writing, and discussion are the most common—and, most would agree, the most valuable—components of a university-level humanities seminar. In humanities courses, all three activities can be conducted with a variety of digital and analog tools. Digital texts can create novel opportunities for teaching and learning, particularly when students’ reading activity is made visible to other members of the course. In this paper, we introduce Lacuna, a web-based software platform which hosts digital course materials to be read and annotated socially.

Futurity: Contemporary Literature and the Quest for the Past

Amir Eshel
Suhrkamp Verlag, 2012 May 1, 2012

Bringing together postwar German, Israeli, and Anglo-American literature, Eshel traces a shared trajectory of futurity in world literature. He begins by examining German works of fiction and the debates they spurred over the future character of Germany’s public sphere. Turning to literary works by Jewish-Israeli writers as they revisit Israel’s political birth, he shows how these stories inspired a powerful reconsideration of Israel’s identity. Eshel then discusses post-1989 literature—from Ian McEwan’s Black Dogs to J. M.
