This lecture is the second in a new, two-part series—held in conjunction with professor Ilana Szobel’s course, “Disability Cultures: Art, Film, and Literature of People with Disabilities”—that explores real-life experiences and artistic performances of people living with disability in Israel. Artists, writers and scholars will examine the intersection of disability with Zionist ideology, gender, race and class. Our presenters will examine the ways performance of disability on stage, on the screen and in everyday life raises questions about Israeli subjectivity.

Sunny Yudkoff is an assistant professor at The University of Wisconsin – Madison. She is the author of “Tubercular Capital: Illness and the Conditions of Modern Jewish Writing,” winner of the 2018 Salo Wittmayer Baron Book Prize (Stanford University Press, 2018).

Presented by the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University and cosponsored by the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, the Department of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, the Lurie Institute for Disability Policy and the Program in Health: Science, Society and Policy, all housed at Brandeis University.
