Please, Everyone,

Remember that you are invited to the Subterranean Speakers
Series. Our guest speaker Professor Tamar Mayer will discuss
current controversial issues on:

Nationalism, Feminism, and Masculinity in the Jewish State.

On MONDAY November 12
2 - 4 p.m.
Sidney Smith - Room 2125

you will be able to enjoy refreshments and muchies.

Professor Mayer will speak on political boundaries, nationalism and
 masculinity in Jewish Israel. She will examine the interplay
between nation, gender, and sexuality and the complex ways in
which they pressure people to negotiate their identities. She will
also discuss the monumental historical juncture at which are the
state of Israel and the Palestinian nation. Both have a chance to
claim a new future but more than a quarter of a century of
occupation has had significant social, political, economic, cultural,
psychological and moral ramifications for Israeli and Palestinian
men and women.

Tamar Mayer is Professor and Chair of the Geography Department
at Middlebury College, Vermont. Her research focuses on the
construction of national identity, with a particular focus on Jewish
and Palestinian nationalisms and gender. Her recent publications
on these topics include Gender Ironies of Nationalism: Sexing the
Nation (Routledge, 2000. Edited volume) and Women and the
Israeli Occupation: The Politics of Change (Routledge, 1994.
Edited Volume).

See you there,
