Graduate Student-Faculty Seminar Series presents Dr. Amir Locker-Biletzki: His presentation will discuss the Settler and the Colonized Consciousness of Israeli Communists

Amir Locker-Biletzki - Postdoctoral Fellow, Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies at Concordia University

Department of Sociology and Anthropology – H-1120
1455 de Maisonneuve Blvd. W

The presentation will explore the writing of an Israeli Communist ideologist. It will be claimed that, while disproving Zionism his critique allowed the forming of a local national identity. It will also be argued that, a difference in understanding the colonial aspects of Zionism, was the result of a difference between the settler and the colonized consciousness.

Amir Locker-Biletzki’s dissertation dealt with the cultural practices of the Jewish Communists in Palestine/ Israel. His current research examines the cultural history of Communism in Palestine/Israel, including how Israeli Communists conceptualized the presence of Western, that is, British and American, powers in the country, and the concurrent changes in the theory and practice of Zionism.
