Podcast Description:

The majority of scholarly debates on the Jewish varieties of nationalism focus on the Jewish man’s role in the (re)building of the Jewish homeland and his body in the regeneration of the Jewish nation. My talk discusses Zionist politics surrounding the Jewish woman’s body and sexuality in this rebirth process as well as in the formation of a modern Jewish identity in interwar Poland. It thus explores Jewish patriarchal structures and the discursive power and reach of Zionist ideology.
