Coffeehouses, Parks, and Neighborhoods: Jews and Muslims

Hosted By: Stroum Center for Jewish Studies

In this talk, Alon Tam will explore the social history of the Jewish community in Egypt, with a special emphasis on its place in the urban history of Cairo during the first half of the 20th century. Looking at public places such as coffeehouses, parks, neighborhoods, and more, he will examine the dynamics of everyday relations between Jews and Muslims in that city, touching on such issues as social hierarchy, performance of social identities, navigating political tension, and memory.
