This event is part of the Schusterman Seminars: advanced seminars geared toward faculty and graduate students, and open to all, presenting the latest research in Israel studies. This semester, we are examining issues of identity, seeking the nuance in gender, religion, nationality and more. The series is presented by the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University.

Shay Hazkani is assistant professor of history and Jewish studies at the University of Maryland, College Park. His research and teaching focuses on the social and cultural history of Palestine/Israel and Middle Eastern Jews. He is the author of “Dear Palestine: A Social History of the 1948 War” (Stanford University Press, 2021). Shay received his Ph.D. in history and Judaic studies from New York University, his MA in Arab studies from Georgetown University and his BA in Middle Eastern studies from Tel Aviv University. He has been involved in various struggles over archival declassification policies in Israel. In 2019, he petitioned the Israeli Supreme Court together with the Association for Civil Rights to compel the Israeli domestic intelligence service, the Shin Bet, to open its archives to the public. Prior to his academic career, Hazkani worked as a journalist covering the West Bank and Israeli military.
