Sayed Kashua, “The Arabs in Israel: The Inaudible Cry for Citizenship”

Sayed Kashua is a Palestinian citizen of Israel, author, and journalist born in Tira, Israel, known for his books and humorous columns in Hebrew. Kashua is the author of three novels: Dancing Arabs , Let it Be Morning, and Second Person Singular (all published in English by Grove Atlantic). Kashua is winner of the prestigious Bernstein Prize. Kashua also writers a satirical weekly column in Hebrew for the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz. In a tongue-in-cheek style, Kashua addresses the problems faced by Arabs in Israel, caught between two worlds. He is the writer and creator of the hit Israeli TV show “Arab Labor,” now in its fourth season. In 2004, Kashua was awarded the Prime Minister’s Prize in Literature. His novel Dancing Arabs has been made into a feature film, and premiered in 2014 at the Telluride Film Festival.

Sponsored by the Duke Center for Jewish Studies, The Forum for Scholars and Publics, the Duke-UNC Middle East Studies Center, and DHRC @ FHI.
