On Orientalist Genealogies: The Split Arab / Jew Figure Revisited

Thursday, March 29, 2018 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm
Cathedral of Learning 501, University of Pittsburgh
Sponsored By: 
The Islamicate Studies Working Group at the University of Pittsburgh

Join us for a public lecture featuring Ella Shohat, Professor of Cultural Studies at New York University. This lecture traces the genealogy of the gradual splitting of a once-linked Oriental figure into two: “Arab” and “Jew,” and its ramifications for contemporary postcolonial tensions. Examining the shifting Orientalist imaginary in the wake of the Enlightenment and the imperial project, the lecture traces present-day assumptions about a longstanding Arab / Jewish divide -- and the ambiguous position of the Arab-Jew within it -- back to crucial shifts in 19th century representation.
