Joing us for a seminar on The Jewish Bookshelf from the Six Day War to the Yom Kippur War, with Matt Silver, professor of modern Jewish history at the Max Stern Yezreel Valley College in Israel.

This even will take place in person and via Zoom. Open to all.

This is a “brown bag” event. You are welcome to bring your lunch. Beverages and snacks will be provided.

What books did Jewish authors, in the U.S. and Israel, publish between the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War, relating to Israel? Focusing on topics such as ethnic (Ashkenazi-Mizrahi) tensions in Israel; contrasting models of masculinity in Israel and America; and blind spots in American-Jewish liberal perceptions of Israel during this transformative period, this analysis probes a provocative, perhaps unavoidable, thesis: Jewish culture has more experience and eloquence when relating to setbacks and calamity, as opposed to triumph.

Max Silver’s research and writing covers topics in Zionism and American- Jewish history; and his publications, in Hebrew and English, include studies on Leon Uris and Exodus, Louis Marshall and a multi-volume history of the Galilee region.

This presentation is part of the Schusterman Seminars series, advanced seminars geared toward faculty and graduate students, presenting the latest research in Israel Studies to the Schusterman Center community and beyond. See the fall lineup here.
