Personally Speaking: Israel Has a Jewish Problem, with Joyce Dalsheim, Ph.D.
Tuesday, February 7th, 2023
Reception at 6 p.m., Speaker at 7 p.m.
The Dubois Center at UNC Charlotte Center City
320 E 9th Street, Charlotte, NC 28202
“Israel Has a Jewish Problem: Self-Determination as Self-Elimination” tells stories about the multiple ways that Jews struggle to be Jewish in Israel. Some of the stories are amusing, others frustrating, but all seem counter-intuitive. Dalsheim argues that struggles over Jewishness are part of the process of producing the ethnos for an ethno-national state. But the paradox is also about how nationalism limits popular sovereignty. Self-determination can become a form of self-elimination, narrowing the possible forms of Jewishness and reproducing Europe’s classic “Jewish Question” in new ways.
Dessert and book signing follow.
