Ronit Matalon is one of the most important writers in Israel today. She made an impression on the world of modern Hebrew literature with the publication of her very first story, “The Trip to Rosh Pina” (Siman Kri’a, 1981).

In this international conference, jointly promoted by the University of Cambridge and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, we will examine the various works of Ronit Matalon from several new and suggestive angles. We also aim to publish the proceedings of the conference later on and create a volume of scholarly works dedicated to her oeuvre.
