    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    2015 marks the fiftieth anniversary of diplomatic relations between Israel and Germany. In this half century the relationship of German and Israeli cultures has evolved from one of mutual estrangement to one of mutual fascination. Academic exchange programs, intellectual and artistic collaborations, and the increased mobility of young Germans and Israeli have redefined this relationship in various ways. An important outgrowth of this exchange is the emergence of ‘German-Hebrew Studies.’ This volume will be the first edited volume dedicated to this young field of scholarship. Essays on literature, history, philosophy, and the visual and performing arts reveal the manifold ways in which German and Hebrew cultures have intersected and impacted one another. The collection will expose the emerging contours of German-Hebrew Studies and reveal the potential of this field to redefine the disciplinary boundaries to which German and Hebrew linguistic cultures are traditionally confined.
