Larissa Remennick is Professor and former Chair of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Bar-Ilan University in Israel. She immigrated from Moscow to Tel Aviv in 1991 as an early-career social scientist, and ever since has studied diverse aspects of integration among former Soviet immigrants (oIim) and their uneasy encounter with the veteran Israeli society. Her recent research focus has been on the so-called Generations 1.5 and 2.0 of Russian-speaking Israelis, their social mobility and identity dilemmas in Israel. Professor Remennick has authored 3 books in Russian, three books in English, among them “Russian Jews on Three Continents: Identity, Integration and Conflict") and some 150 articles and book chapters. She has been included in the Stanford Citation Index among the 2% of the most internationally-cited social scientists.
