My essays about mythology, performance, and current affairs have appeared on 3 Quarks Daily.

A few of my favorites are:

A Sirens Song, about Christine Blasey-Ford’s testimony, vocal fry, the Homeric sirens, and trauma;

Performing Jewish Memory in Germany;

Sex Scenes, Stage Kisses, Post-MeToo Intimacy: From Catherine Breillat to Sarah Ruhl and Back;

A Philoctetes for our times: from Kokoschka to The Peaky Blinders.
