My name is Maayan Taharani, I am from Israel, am 30 years old and am an MA-Student at the Department of Romance Studies at the Hebrew University. I spent the last 5 years of my life in Europe, where I completed a double BA-degree in Foreign Languages, Literature and Intercultural Studies in the curriculum of Italian-German Bilateral Studies at the Universities of Florence (Italy) and Bonn (Germany). In particular, I chose to study German and Spanish language, literature and linguistics. I also joined courses on Art History, Geography, History of Cinema and Italian theatre, among others.
I enrolled in the Master-Program of the Department of Romance Studies in order to further deepen my knowledge of Italian culture and contemporary Italian literature. I also look forward to joining the classes on translation and translation studies that are offered in the Master’s framework. During my Master-Degree, I intend to carry out research on a topic that connects Italian and Hebrew linguistics with contemporary Italian literature.
In the future, I would love to return to Italy and find a job there thanks to the skills that I will acquire during my Master. Don’t hesitate to contact me for any question you might have about life in Italy and the Master Program at the Department of Romance Studies!
