Lital Levy, "Temporalities of Israel/Palestine: History, Culture, and the Politics of Time"

Louis and Rachel Lesk Memorial Fund in Israel Studies

This talk addresses the growing interest in temporality evident in the interdisciplinary scholarship on Israel/Palestine, considering perspectives from literary and cultural studies as well as sociology and political theory. I calibrate this trend with the shift from two-state to one-state thinking, and illustrate my argument by way of a comparative reading of two stories from the 1960s by the renowned Israeli and Palestinian authors Amos Oz and Ghassan Kanafani.

This event is free and open to the public. No registration required. Limited seating.
