Tue, 16. Nov 2021, 19:30-21:30 THE ARAB AND JEWISH QUESTIONS: Rethinking Israel/Palestine Online-lecture with Bashir Bashir. A cooperation between The Jewish Museum Hohenems and The Bruno Kreisky Forum for International Dialogue (In English)

Bashir Bashir is one of the leading Palestinian intellectuals of today who is looking for ways out of the national dead ends of the Middle East conflict. A fellow of the Kreisky Forum in Vienna, he spent more than a decade exploring alternatives to the logic of separation, exclusion and mutual delegitimization together with Jewish-Israeli and Palestinian scholars. The result of this mutual engagement and intellectual journey culminated in the publication of Rethinking the Politics of Israel/ Palestine: Partition and its alternatives.  Bashir Bashir´s latest volume The Arab and Jewish Questions: Geographies of Engagement in Palestine and Beyond, published together with Leila Farsakh, sheds new light on the complicated relationships between orientalism, anti-semitism, Islamophobia, colonialism and the hopeless situation in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Importantly, it shows the inseparability of the Arab and Jewish struggles for self-determination and political equality. The “Jewish question” and the “Arab question”, historically and especially in the present, are more intertwined than either side would like. In his lecture in Hohenems, Bashir Bashir will take up on these different threads and elaborate on them further. Bashir Bashir is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology, Political Science, and Communication at the Open University of Israel, and senior research fellow at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute and at the Bruno Kreisky Forum. He is the co-editor (with Amos Goldberg) of The Holocaust and the Nakba: A New Grammar of Trauma and History (Columbia University Press, 2018) and (with Leyla Farsakh) of The Arab and Jewish Questions: Geographies of Engagement in Palestine and beyond (Columbia University Presse, 2021) The Arab and Jewish Questions: Geographies of Engagement in Palestine and Beyond, Bashir Bashir and Leila Farsakh (eds) can be purchased as hard cover, paperback or e-book at cup.columbia.edu
