New Course: “A Volcano of Our Own Making”
Anti-Colonial Voices of Jews in Palestine/Land of Israel
At: 10/2021

5 online sessions | Sundays, 20:00-21:30| Starting: October 2, 2021 | Moderator: Dr. Avi-ram Tzoreff

How can we imagine a Jewish existence in Palestine/Land of Israel that is independent of the colonial situation? Can we think of the “Land of Israel” other than as a settler-colonial state, one designed to exclude “Palestine”? How may the decolonization of Palestine untie the knot between the Land of Israel and the colonial situation?

In the course, we will reflect on those possibilities, identify the moments when Jewish existence in the country began intertwining with the colonial situation, and think of the political horizon arising from earlier forms of Jewish existence in that space. We will review alternative ways in which the country’s image was constructed in Jews’ writings, particularly the opposition of certain writers to the linkage between the Jewish existence in Palestine/Land of Israel and colonization, and the political horizons they charted for a non-colonial collective Jewish existence.
