A Talk by Najat Abdulhuq, author of Jewish and Greek Communities in Egypt: Entrepreneurship and Business before Nasser

In the years following Nasser s rise to power, the demographic landscape and the economy of Egypt underwent a profound change. Related to the emigration of diverse communities that had a distinguished role in Egyptian economy before leaving, these shifts have mostly been discussed in the light of postcolonial studies and the nationalisation policies in the wider region. Najat Abdulhaq focuses instead on the role that these minorities had in the economy of pre-Nasser Egypt and, by giving special attention to the Jewish and Greek communities residing in Egypt, investigates the dynamics of minorities involved in entrepreneurship and business. With rigorous analysis of the types of companies that were set up, Abdulhaq draws out the changes which were occurring in the political and social sphere at the time. Whilst primarily focused on the economic activities of these two minority communities, Jewish and Greek Communities in Egypt has implications for an understanding analysis of the political, the juridical, the intellectual and the cultural trends at the time.

Followed by a conversation with Professor Joyce Zonana, author of the memoir Dream Homes: From Cairo to Katrina, an Exile's Journey. Zonana will discuss Abdulhuqs book comparatively and will draw links between Jewish Egyptian community lives and politics in Egypt and in Brooklyn, NY, where many Egyptian Jews have resettled after 1952.

 Jewish New York, 1917

City: New York

Additional Notes:
When the US entered WWI in the spring of 1917, how did New York Jews respond? What were the key conflicts and creative responses to wartime in New York of 1917? As they faced military service, some Jewish New Yorkers sought to build new institutions to help Jews in uniform while others opposed war and championed peace. This panel explores these questions from the viewpoints of military history and urban history, and celebrates the launching of two new landmark books in the field of American Jewish History. Deborah Dash Moores Jewish New York reveals the multifaceted world of one of the citys most important ethnic and religious groups. Spanning three centuries, Jewish New York traces the earliest arrival of Jews in New Amsterdam to the recent immigration of Jews from the former Soviet Union. Ronit Y. Stahls Enlisting Faith plumbs the changes taking place in the US militarys chaplaincy which, upon entering WWI, included only mainline Protestants and Catholics, and until today, when it counts Jews, Mormons, Muslims, Christian Scientists, Buddhists, Seventh-day Adventists, Hindus, and evangelicals among its ranks.
