An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until December 11, 2019
This conference brings together leading scholars and practitioners in the newly emerging field of Mizrahi Legal Studies. The positionality of Mizrahi Jews (descendants of Jews from Arab and Muslim countries) has been traditionally neglected in legal academia. Drawing on Critical Race Theory and Critical Legal Studies, the emerging field of Mizrahi Legal Studies examins the specific status of Mizrahi Jews in Israeli Law and Society. This conference will take a leading role in shaping this growing scholarly movement.
