Ezra Zuckerman Sivan

Welcome to my website. Thanks for visiting.

I hope you find the materials I have posted here to be valuable.  If you have comments on anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.

There are three principal items posted on this website: research papers, essays, and plans. The research papers and book reviews were written for publication in academic journals, though some of them have not been published and some may never be submitted for publication. The essays were written at various times for various purposes. (There are also some pieces that are sort of in-between (not surprising since classification is always crude).

BTW, many people who know me professionally as “Ezra Zuckerman” wonder what the story is with my full name—“Ezra Zuckerman Sivan.”  Conversely, people who know me outside of work tend to become acquainted with me as “Ezra Sivan.” The key thing to know is that I answer to both, so you cannot make a mistake.  If you’re interested in the story, see my About page.
