The identity from absence: the imagined otherness and a nation building

New lecture series 2017 at the Nahmanides Institute for Jewish Studies


An identity is built over time by continuous reference to others. Being someone is being not another person. This "otherness" is often a presence (our new neighbour, our marginalized neighbour, etc.). Sometimes it is also an absence, a past absence but also a reverberant one, expelled yet admired at the same time. In the history of the Catalan Countries, Jews and Moors have often performed this role of "the other absent" which, in some way, has shaped the individual and collective identity.
