24. The Mizrachi (Sephardic) Voice in Israeli Literature
Since the mass immigration waves of the 50th, Israeli literature is addressing the issues of Jews from Moslem countries and their integration into its society. The long way, from their early marginalized situation to the assumption of empowered strong voices of the present, is expressed in rich and creative literature. The session will offer critical reading of works by Nathan Alterman, Balfour Hakak , Shimon Adaf, Roni Somek, Ariela Azulai and others.
