Aziza Khazzoom: "A Jewish history of Orientalism and its effect on hierarchies in Israel"

Event Details

Monday, April 8, 2019
12-1 p.m.
Khazzoom reviews empirical work – a first project based on analysis of Israel’s 1961 census and a second project analyzing life stories I collected from Iraqi and Polish Jews who immigrated to Israel in the 1950s – to specify the effects of westernization projects on Israeli subjectivity, hierarchies, and past and potential relationship to its Middle Eastern environment.
