Ph.D Student

Neta Kleine is a doctoral student at the Department of Comparative Literature. She completed her MA in Foreign Literatures at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Her MA thesis explores Marina Tsvetaeva’s and Mina Loy’s poetics of pain through the prism of disability and queer critique, tracing the somatic nature of artistic production and consumption. Neta is interested in Russian and Anglophone modernist representations of the agonized, diseased, or otherwise defamiliarized body, particularly in relation to contemporary reading methodologies, poetic form, and translation.
