Eve Tavor Bannet

Professor Emeritus

Ph.D., Hebrew University, 1979

Prof. Bannet teaches courses on British and trans-Atlantic British-American literature during the Enlightenment, on British women's writing, and on literary and cultural studies. She assigns a fairly heavy work load in all her courses, because she wants students to be able think for themselves on an informed basis, and to develop their reading and writing skills. You have been warned!
