Lital Pascar PhD Candidate in Rhetoric and Public Culture

Lital is a doctoral candidate in the Rhetoric and Public Culture program. Her dissertation examines popular discourses about monogamy and non-monogamy, suggesting that the rising popularity of consensual non-monogamous relationships is shaped in relation to racialized, classed, and gendered narratives and is connected to white middle-class anxieties. She has published on queer safe spaces, discussing their inherent contradictions and their connection to securitization discourses.

She holds an MA in Cultural Studies from the Hebrew University and a BA in Psychology and Sociology from Tel-Aviv University. Her professional experience includes working and volunteering in several human rights, LGBTQ and women’s rights NGOs.
