Negotiating French, Maghreb-French, & Jewish Identities Through Literature and History
March 21, 2012
The series "Negotiating French, Maghreb-French, & Jewish Identities Through Literature and History," seeking to enhance a new dialogue between different plural voices writing about multiple Jewish identities originating from France and the Maghreb. Special focus on conflicting and co-existing identities and the ways in which they are presented in literature and history. The goal of the project is to look beyond the much discussed hybrid identity of widely translated writers and scholars, and present a more inclusive, rich, and complex perspective on the unique interplay between Jewish, French and/or Maghreb identities.
