Sur rendez-vous

    As professor in the Department of French Culture at Bar Ilan University I specialize in both French literature and Discourse Analysis. I was initially interested in the New Novel in France (le Nouveau Roman), to which I devoted a book (Les discours du Nouveau Roman: Essais, Entretiens, Débats [The discourses of the New Novel: Essays, Interviews, Debates], Septentrion 2006), as well as numerous articles on the theoretical writings of Nathalie Sarraute (Revue des sciences humaines, 273 (1), 2004) and of Alain Robbe-Grillet (Études littéraires, Automne 2005).

    My interest in the relationship between the press and twentieth century literature resulted in an essay on the literary interview (L’entretien littéraire. L’Anatomie d’un genre [The Literary Interview. The Anatomy of a Genre] (Classiques Garnier, 2018). My focus on the genres of discourse and Rhetoric has led me to conduct some research on the question of the audience in the press and in websites of political leaders (for my publications, see link). In recent years, I have been working on multimodal discourse involving combinations of texts and images. My latest research (2016-2019, ISF grant, 2020 ISF workshop grant) focuses on representations of Israel in tourist guidebooks and photo albums. Since I believe that the researcher is committed to give back to society, I have translated the results of this research into an exhibition (https://israelsbiu.wixsite.com/israelshe).

    I am currently working on a digital humanities project involving a data base of the material collected during my ISF project. The idea behind this project is to create an online archive of the materials collected during the project and to build a free access online database that will include, in addition to private collections, a link to national collections and ephemera. The data base will enable comparisons and cross-referencing of textual, visual and material information, in order to recreate the images of the State of Israel in the various periods of its existence. The multilayered information it will contain will be accessed and used by scholars in the various disciplines of the Humanities and Social Sciences (Archeology, Literature, History, Tourism, Anthropology).

    In 2014-2016, I co-piloted (with Prof. Silvia Adler), a community engagement project (financed by the Council for Higher Education) for the improvement of French language skills through work with French Speaking elderly (https://afls.net/cahiers/21.1/Cahiers_21(1)_2-Adler_&_Yanoshevsky_2017…).   

    I have thirty years of teaching experience in Tel-Aviv University, Sapir Academic college and Bar-Ilan University, in both French and Communication Departments. For courses taught, cf. link.

    I was invited professor and lecturer to several universities abroad, amongst which:  Université Franche-Comté (Sept.-Déc. 2017 bourse régionale Bourgogne Franche-Comté mobilité entrante de professeur invité), Sorbonne Universités, CELSA_GRIPIC école du journalism (Dec. 2017), Université de Pau et des pays de l’Adour, UFR LLSHS (Nov. 2017), Sherbrooke University, Canada, centre de recherche GRELQ (Oct. 2019), McGill University, Canada, French Departement (Oct. 2019), Pisa University, Department of Philology, Literature and Linguistics (Nov. 2019)

     In 2013 I was awarded Chevalier dans l'ordre des palmes académiques.
