Much of the modern Jewish experience can be framed as one of multiple (and at times contradictory) negotiations with Orientalist and Occidentalist discourses that were constructed by, for and against the Jews. The Orientalist web was and remains a kind of all-enveloping thematic
in which nearly all the permutations of modern Jewish history have been played. This lecture will probe these entanglements and analyse not only their ironic and debilitating but also their creative moments from the Enlightenment through to its central role within present-day Israeli political reality.
