In the Kingdom of Fever: Tradition, Tuberculosis, and the Creation of Yiddish Poetry
This lecture is the final event in a two-part series, “Performing Disability in Israel”
— 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, thus, will examine the ways performance of disability on stage, on the screen, and in everyday life raises questions about Israeli subjectivity.
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 (HSSP), all housed at Brandeis University.
