Tamar is a PhD student in the history department, a recipient of the President scholarship, and a member of the research group "The Evolution of Attention" at the Mandel Scholion Research Center. Tamar holds a B.Mus from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance in classical piano performance, and an MA in European Studies from the Hebrew University.
Her MA thesis examines conceptions of a European identity in the context of a postwar German "identity crisis," tracing their later resonance in the context of an EU legitimacy crisis in the 1990s and onwards. Her PhD dissertation focuses on different manifestations of the 19th century (1830-1880) ethnic stereotype of the German people as "apolitical" and how they corresponded to the question of German statehood. Alongside her PhD studies, Tamar works as an academic translator and editor.
