Event Details

Reception: 6:30-7:00pm

Presentation: 7:00-7:45pm

Q&A:  7:45-8:00pm

Dr. Doly Levi, Head of the International School of Education at Levinsky College (Tel Aviv, Israel) is an expert in the field of Hebrew pedagogy whose research and teaching reveal a strong interest not only in language but in related questions of multiculturalism, globalism and immigration. Her work includes research on the social assimilation of immigrant children in Israel, and, as part of her dedication to fostering global dialogues, Dr. Levi has developed international collaborative programs between students studying in Israel and students studying Hebrew abroad. Within these contexts, she works on Hebrew as a native language and as a second language and on Hebrew and multilingualism in a multicultural society. She also conducts research into the syntax and rhetoric of both contemporary Hebrew and of the Hebrew Press of the Enlightenment period.

Dr. Levi’s work offers valuable insights into language acquisition, immigration, and multiculturalism. These insights are heightened in Dr. Levi’s work by the context of her studies within the cultural dynamics of Israel’s own relatively young immigrant society and Israel’s ongoing and self-conscious construction of its own cultural identity.
