Nationalism and Masculine Desire: The Case of Hebrew Poetry

Description:
The Joseph and Rebecca Meyerhoff Center for Jewish Studies, The Gildenhorn Institute for Israel Studies and The Department of Womens Studies presents: Professor Hamutal Tsamir The talk focuses on the Hebrew poetry of the Revival period (HaTechiyah) written at the turn of the 20th century, and mostly on the Hebrew national poet, Haim Nachman Bialik (1873-1934). While examining the libidinal economy that is at work in this poetry, I argue that Bialik attempts to turn his sufferings and weakness into masculine productive power - a project that leads to inevitable dilemmas and prices. Hamutal Tsamir is a Professor at the Department of Hebrew Literature at Ben-Gurion University of Negev, Israel. {Will appear in FYI on Mar 29, 2012
