Daniel Leftkowitz

  I teach courses in two fields at the university: linguistic anthropology and Middle Eastern studies. My Middle East courses include Language and Culture in the Middle East, which I teach each Fall, and Reflections of Exile: Jewish Languages and their Communities, which I teach periodically during Spring semesters. I also teach courses called Language and Emotion, Language and Identity, and Speech Play and Verbal Art. Most of my previous research has focused on Israel--on dialect changes in Hebrew and the politics of Israeli identity. More recently I have begun to study the language of popular culture -- television commercials and narrative films -- in the U.S. I studied at, and received degrees from Dartmouth College, The University of Pennsylvania, and The University of Texas at Austin. I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and enjoy soccer, mountain climbing, and the out-of-doors whenever I can. more
