THE JEW, THE ARAB: A HISTORY OF THE ENEMY

 

Gil Anidjar

Assistant Professor in the Department of Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures at Columbia University

 

Moderator:

Bashir Bashir

Fellow, Van Leer Institute, Jerusalem

In his book, The Jew, the Arab: A History of the Enemy (Stanford UP, 2003), Gil Anidjar examines the absence of the enemy together with the absence of a history of Europe’s relation to both Jew and Arab in the Western philosophical, political and religious canon. The book is an attempt to analyze, in historical and theoretical terms, why these two absences are not reflected upon, what prevents such reflection.
