Sammy Smooha, “Is Israel Really Western? Does it Have Viable Alternative Options?” October 26, 2016, 5:30pm, Brunei Gallery Room, SOAS, London.

Abstract: Israel is known as a Western state, culture and society. Applying various standards of Western civilisation, Smooha scrutinises and problematizes this international and self-image, questioning whether Israel is indeed Western. He discusses the barriers in Israel’s drive to the West and the alternative options it has (Middle-Eastern, Mediterranean, global).

 

Notice: changes

After an extended summer hiatus, the OISBB will be renewing operations, but with some notable changes: Posts will be limited to a daily post including a miscellany of notices (publication, events, etc.). Tags will be minimal. Publications will be announced with brief bibliographic details and a URL (where available), but abstracts will no longer be attached. This is intended to diminish the time-consuming efforts of publication, in order to maintain operations, until funds for a more substantial project are available.
