Talk on "Reclaiming the 'Z' word: From the Zionist idea to the Zionist ideas in the Jewish world, the scholarly world, Canada, and beyond"
In explaining the thought process behind updating Arthur Hertzberg's 1959 classic, The Zionist Idea, this keynote will define different periods of Zionist thought - different schools of Zionist thought, some of the obstacles scholars and all others face in having a fair, clear-eyed conversation about this oft-targeted and delegitimized movement. This talk will be rooted in the history and philosophy of Zionism - but will be making relevant points about how we approach pressing political issues related to the Jewish people, Israel - and liberal nationalism, especially in the Age of Brexit and Donald Trump.
Refreshments will be served and signed books will be available for purchase.
