A genealogy of dis/placement. The Babylonian Jews

In collaboration with Spui 25, Joods Cultureel Kwartier & Duitsland Instituut Amsterdam

What is the significance of ‘place’ (makom in Hebrew, makan in Arabic) in the narration of the displaced Jewish-Iraqi community in the wake of overpowering political forces, which – in one form or another – generated a vortex that rendered a millennial existence in Mesopotamia impossible? This afternoon we reflect on this question with professor Ella Shohat.

Datum: 2 december 2019
Tijd:     17:00-18:30 uur
Plaats:  Spui 25, Amsterdam
