Simone Stirner

Simone’s research focuses on the poetry of Paul Celan, on the relation between German and Hebrew modernism and the correlation between aesthetic form and religious thought in modernity. She is also interested in the politics of multilingualism, political theology, and critical theory. Before coming to Berkeley, she was also a visiting student at Tel Aviv University and Venice International University and worked for the German Cultural Institute (Goethe-Institut) in Jerusalem, Israel.
