About the Event

How can we rethink identity politics and its varied meanings and shortcomings between Israel and the US? How can we translate ethnicity and struggle? The meeting will talk about the pressing questions of those two arenas, partially through recent translations of African-American literature (James Baldwin and Ta-Nehisi Coates) to Hebrew. How does translation relate to identity in a cross-cultural context?

Zohar Elmakias is a writer, researcher, translator, and PhD Candidate at Columbia University in the field of Anthropology. Zohar has translated works such as “Between the World and Me” by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Zohar is also a teacher at TINAU and has taught the Mizrahi Struggle several times, which remains TINAU's most sought out course ever.
