Join the Frankel Center for a symposium on "Ethiopean Jews: The Politics of Difference in Israeli Historiography." Efrat Yerday, PhD Candidate at Tel Aviv University, will examine the political struggle of Ethiopian Jewish activists for naturalization in Israel from 1955 up to 1975. Dr. Adane Zawdu Gebyanesh will be discussing the changing relations between ethnic culture and skin color among Ethiopian Israelis, from the early years of migration to today. He will focus on how categories of difference and group formation are linked to particular social spaces, networks, opportunities, and policing, as well as the social and political consequences of the changing classification structure. The talks will be in conversation with Dr. Bryan Roby of the University of Michigan.
