This course delves into the history of Blackness and Jewishness throughout the Middle East. Specifically, this course explores parallels between the struggles of Blacks and Jews in modern history. Students explore the ways in which diasporic identities are constructed and reconstructed over time and space. We will discuss the flexible and interrelated nature of the categories of Blackness and Jewishness across different cultural, historical, and temporal contexts.


What linkages can be drawn between civil rights struggles in Israel and America?
How does the history of slavery intersect with the status of Jews in the Middle East?
Where do Ethiopian Jews fit into the categories of Blackness/Jewishness?
What is the image of the Black in Jewish Culture?
How does black anti-colonial thought relate to Jewish intellectual thought?
