The “other” diaspora: From traitors to heroes?
Tatiana Fogelman /Denmark
For Jews diaspora usually means one thing: Jews living outside of Israel. Since the establishment of the State of Israel there has slowly emerged another type of (mostly) Jewish diaspora, the Israeli diaspora. This talk focuses on this “other” diaspora and how the way Israel perceives its members has changed dramatically between the early decades of the Jewish state and now.
Originally from Slovakia, I have lived in six other countries across three continents before coming to Denmark. Along the way I became trained as a migration and urban geographer, with passion for understanding issues of citizenship, integration and difference, as well as all things Jewish. I work as an Associate Professor in Mobility and Urban Studies at Roskilde University and live in Copenhagen with my family.
