2014 ANNUAL SERLING MODERN ISRAEL LECTURE  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

"Zionism as a Liberal Democratic Worldview"

Gadi Taub, Hebrew University

An Israeli historian, writer, screenwriter, and public intellectual, Dr. Taub's books in Hebrew include a bestselling collection of essays titled "A Dispirited Rebellion: Essays on Contemporary Israeli Culture" (Hebrew), "What is Zionism" (Hebrew), and recently "The Settlers and the Struggle Over the Meaning of Zionism" (Hebrew; English). Taub is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Communications at Hebrew University, and he contributes op-ed columns to the Israeli and international press. Taub believes in the right of all peoples, including the Jews, to self-determination in their own nation state. He supports the creation of a Palestinian state beside Israel. Taub distinguishes between original Zionism, or the Zionism of Liberty (or Zionism of State), and a new messianic Zionism that he calls a Zionism of Land. In Taub's view, Zionism of Land is an ideological negation of the original Zionism of Liberty and also the road to Israel's demise. Co-sponsored by Jewish Studies and James Madison College.
