Emily Alice Katz



I am a writer, editor, and musician living in Durham, North Carolina.

My fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in the pages of Confrontation, South Carolina Review, Lilith, Flyway, Jewish Fiction.net, The Main Street Rag, Sky Island Journal, Mud Season Review and Kindred.

I earned a PhD in modern Jewish studies from the Jewish Theological Seminary in 2008. My book Bringing Zion Home: Israel in American Jewish Culture, 1948-1967, was published by SUNY Press in 2015. You can hear me talking about the book on this New Books Network podcast. You can find my academic articles here.
