The Center for Race Gender Thursday Forum Series presents…

A Shadow over Palestine: The Imperial Life of Race in America
Prof. Keith Feldman, Ethnic Studies
Commentary: Prof. Judith Butler, Comparative Literature Program in Critical Theory
A Shadow over Palestine brings a new, deeply informed, and transnational perspective to the cultural forces that have shaped sharply differing ideas of Israel’s standing with the United States—right up to the violent divisions of today. Focusing on the period from 1960 to 1985, author Keith P. Feldman reveals the centrality of Israel and Palestine in postwar U.S. imperial culture. In this CRG Thursday Forum, Prof. Feldman will discuss the themes explored in this volume and Prof. Judith Butler will provide reflective commentary.
