JEWISH STUDIES FACULTY STUDENT RESEARCH SEMINAR  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

"Huwiya/Zehut: Identity and Language in the Israeli Bilingual Sitcom 'Arab Labor'"

Marc Bernstein, Michigan State University

Dr. Bernstein explores linguistic issues surrounding the Arabic-speaking protagonists in the popular Israeli sitcom "Arab Labor." He discusses the "blended Israeli Arabic," a unique dialectical variant containing embedded Hebrew words and phrases drawn from specific semantic fields, which, at critical junctures, determines plot direction and undergirds a critique of both Palestinian-Israeli and Jewish-Israeli societies. Co-sponsored by Jewish Studies and Muslim Studies.
