Re: Introductions!!!

1) who you are, your rank/institutional affiliation: Janice R. Levi, PhD Candidate, UCLA.

2)what research questions connected you to Klal Rhetorica: I am interested in the notion of rhetoric and how it is tethered to identity construction, maintenance, and performance.

3) what you’re working on, The history of Jewish presence in West Africa.

4) what you hope to get from the community: At this stage, I think learning more about the role of rhetoric in Judaism, recommended reading, and theorizing is instructive.
