Ella Shohat (New York University)

Shohat argues that the question of the Arab-Jew must be posed in order to address the complex imaginaries of both “the Arab” and “the Jew,” which in contrast to present-day nationalist common sense, must be rearticulated as mutually constitutive categories. Event includes reception and audience Q&A.

Shohat's talk is co-presented by the Ray Smith Symposium in the College of Arts & Sciences.
