Jews and Muslims in Colonial Algeria: Between Intimacy and Resentment
Hosted By: Stroum Center for Jewish Studies - University of Washington
In this talk, Yuval Tal will explore the unique relations between Muslims and Jews in the French colony of Algeria between 1830 and 1962, examining the culture and the social space that Jews and Muslims shared and showing how the establishment of colonial rule in Algeria shaped their daily encounters. Both moments of solidarity and episodes of violence between the two groups will be discussed, showing how colonialism, class, and Arab and Jewish nationalism influenced the relations of these communities.
