17 maart 2014 Lecture by Bryan Roby - We Too Shall Overcome: Mizrahi Political Thought and the Ethnic Struggle in Israel 1948 – 1966

The talk will examine the political thought of left-leaning Middle Eastern Jewish (or Mizrahi) intellectuals in the 1950s and 1960s. Underlying the examination is the contention that there is a serious need to revisit perhaps reconstruct the historical understanding of early Mizrahi political thought in Israel. The lecture starts at 15.00 in Matthias de Vrieshof, room 1/001
