75 years after its establishment in May of 1948, Israel faces one of its most challenging moments – a moment that asks for a critical reassessment. In a special panel discussion, four Israeli scholars will offer their own reassessment from different perspectives. They will explore the problems and possibilities of describing Israeli history, the ties between Israeli culture and current politics, the past and future relations between Israel and the European Union, and the ethnic tensions between Ashkenazim and Mizrachim.

Panel discussion with:

  • Prof. Arie M. Dubnov (George Washington University)
  • Prof. Anat Feinberg (University of Jewish Studies, Heidelberg)
  • Prof. Alfred Tovias (Hebrew University Jerusalem)
  • Allianz Visiting Prof. Lior B. Sternfeld (Penn State University)

Moderation: Dr. Ghilad Shenhav (LMU)
