Ribhi Kamal: The Predicament of an Arab Hebraist

Hosted By: Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University

The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies invites you to join us for the next Schusterman Seminar, “Ribhi Kamal: The Predicament of an Arab Hebraist,” with Dr. Caroline Kahlenberg. What led Arab intellectuals to study Hebrew in the early twentieth century? And how did they use that knowledge in the post-1948 Middle East? This talk explores such questions through the life of one Palestinian Arab scholar of Hebrew, Ribhi Kamal, who employed his linguistic knowledge throughout the twentieth century in Zionist organizations, on British-Mandate radio, and in the service of postcolonial Arab governments in Damascus, Amman, and Beirut.
