Curriculum Vitae (pdf)
Nurit Eini-Pindyck is a visual artist who was born and raised in Israel. Previously a Systems Analyst who worked for a decade in management teams for large organizations, she has been collaborating with other scholars since joining the WSRC. She has been co-producing, co-directing, co-performing in public events such as Jewish-German Dialogue of Artists (2002), Feminist Dance performance by three generations of women (2002), and Mother’s Day Celebrations (2003, 2004, 2005). In Memory of Scholar Elizabeth Mark, she co-coordinated an event on March 28, 2007 about the Jewish Rite of Circumcision.
Eini-Pindyck creates participatory events and installations in the process of conducting her long-term research/art projects: Gender and Religion, Performing Women’s Narratives and the Transformation of Loss. Her site-specific interactive art installations at local universities address issues of women in Judaism (“House of Gender,” Tufts University, 2001) and women’s memories of the Holocaust (Brandeis University’s Science Building, 1999). Since 2003 she has been performing “Women’s Narratives as a Form of Resistance” and “The Drama of Motherhood.” “The Suitcase Project: a work in progress”, following the death of her mother, includes so far street performances, video productions and creative writing.
On leave for the 2011-2012 Academic Year.
