2nd Year Graduate School Student


Neta Kleine (she/her) completed her MA in Foreign Literatures at Ben-Gurion University. Her MA thesis explores Mina Loy’s and Marina Tsvetaeva’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 modernist representations of the agonized, diseased, or otherwise defamiliarized body, particularly in relation to contemporary reading methodologies, poetic form, and translation.
