The General Messiness of Life: Memories from the Archive and Beyond
Tamar Hager teaches in the Department of Education and in the Gender Studies Program at Tel Hai College, Israel. Motherhood, critical feminist methodology, microhistory, art sociology, fictional and academic writing, multiculturalism and critical pedagogy are core issues of her research and writing. She published in 2000 a book of short stories A Perfectly Ordinary Life (in Hebrew) and in 2012 Malice Aforethought (in Hebrew), in which she attempts to reconstruct the elusive biographies of two English working-class mothers who killed their babies at the end of the nineteenth century. She is also a coeditor of Bad Mothers: Regulations, Representations, and Resistance (2017).
