Gothic Narratives of Israel / Palestine in Hebrew Novels by Ayman Sikseck and Alon Hilu

Hosted By: Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University

This presentation will focus on Ayman Sikseck’s novel “Tishrin” (2016) and Alon Hilu’s novel “Ahuzat Dajani” (The House of Rajani, 2008). Both novels represent the histories of Israel/Palestine through uncannily mirrored Gothic narratives. Predicated on dark family secrets and undergirded by the experience of queerness, these narratives challenge our understanding of the ways stories are told and histories are transmitted.
