REVIEWER MEETS REVIEWED

SEMINAR SERIES AT THE BRITISH MUSEUM'S CENTRE FOR ANTHROPOLOGY

State Practices and Zionist Images

Reviewed: Dr David Wesley, University of Tel-Aviv
Reviewer: Prof Tom Selwyn, SOAS

Thursday 16th February 2012 at 10.00 am (tea & coffee served from 9.30am)

Centre for Anthropology, British Museum

THIS IS A FREE EVENT

The British Museum’s Centre for Anthropology, in collaboration with the Royal Anthropological Institute, is pleased to present the third seminar in the 2011-12 series of ‘Reviewer meets Reviewed’. David Wesley will give a presentation on his book ‘State Practices & Zionist Images’.

The book examines the power dimension of Jewish-Arab relations in Israel. Avoiding reduction to essentialised models of oppressor and victim, the author shows the ever-shifting lines of confrontation emerging in the encounter of the Palestinian minority with Israeli state practices and the contextualising images that inform them.

Wesley and Selwyn will explore questions raised by the review. The author will elaborate on his personal experience as a member of Israeli society and the new understandings at which he has arrived in pondering the real-life, moral implications of his study.
