Nostalgia as Critique: The Case of Jews in Egyptian Cinema
This series focuses on continuity and rupture as a way to deepen our dialogue about the different forms modernity has adopted throughout Sephardi history. Discuss concepts including the meaning of “modernity” in non-European contexts such as the Levant and/or the Arab world. Explore how non-European Jewish societies developed ways of life that synthesized tradition, change and cultural diversity throughout time. Delve into Sephardi intellectual life, cosmopolitanism, cultural belongings, language, translation and mobility.
