The New New Hebrew: Contemporary Trends in Israeli Culture
Hosted By: The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University
Israeli culture was built on the Zionist image of the “New Hebrew”: a new type of Jew untainted by diaspora Jewish life and committed to Hebrew as the national language. But in the 21st century, with the rise of globalization and transnational cultural influences, contemporary Israeli culture reflects not only the specific history of Hebrew and of Israel but also many influences that challenge the image of the “New Hebrew.” This talk will focus on some of the trends in contemporary Israeli literature, art, and music that reflect these challenges.
