Concurrently with the UCLA International Symposium on 'Rethinking the History of Jewish Nationalism,' (Jan. 30-31, 2011) this workshop will bring together graduate students who are engaged with this topic.
Participants are asked to draw from their own research to address one of the following questions: How might scholars of Jewish nationalism move beyond the received Zionist narrative to consider forms of nationalism prior to, coexistent with or opposed to Zionism, and the great variety of often contradictory and competing positions that have existed under the rubric of Zionism? How have forms of Jewish nationalism changed over the past centuries and decades and how might we assess the meaning of contemporary nationalisms, both in Israel and other parts of the world? What can be learned from a study of the cultures and practices of Jewish nationalism, (e.g. musical and literary traditions, language, celebrations and rituals, and proto-military and military organizations)?
