Join us for a presentation by Dr. Tamar Sella, an ethnomusicologist whose research takes an interdisciplinary approach to broadly investigate the intersections of performance, diaspora and power. She is primarily interested in the relationship between Jewish diaspora, Mizrahi and Arab-Jewish culture and themes of race, gender and colonialism in the Middle East. Her current research is an ethnographic study of contemporary Mizrahi performance and cultural memory that seeks to illuminate the ways in which ongoing Jewish diasporic formations may reframe colonial and racial logics in Israel/Palestine.

Dr. Sella received a Ph.D. in music from Harvard University in 2020 and a BA in music from the University of California at Berkeley in 2011. She is currently the Samuel W. and Goldye Marian Spain Postdoctoral Fellow in the Jewish Studies Program at Rice University.
