Hear Professor Lavie at The Avid Reader

From page A4 | April 29, 2014 |

Professor Smadar Lavie will discuss her book, “Wrapped in the Flag of Israel: Mizrahi Single Mothers and Bureaucratic Torture,” at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 29, at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St.

“Wrapped in the Flag of Israel” discusses social protest movements from the 2003 Single Mothers’ March led by Mizrahi Vicky Knafo, to the “Tahrir is Here” Israeli mass protests of summer 2011.

Equating bureaucratic entanglements with pain — what she argues can be seen as torture — Lavie explores the conundrum of loving and staying loyal to a state that repeatedly inflicts pain on its non-European Jewish women citizens through its bureaucratic system.

The book presents a model of bureaucracy as divine cosmology and posits that Israeli state bureaucracy is based on a theological essence that fuses the categories of religion, gender and race into the foundation of citizenship.

Lavie is a visiting fellow at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at UC Berkeley, and a visiting professor at the Institute for Social Science in the 21st Century, University College Cork. She spent nine years as an assistant and associate professor of anthropology at UC Davis.
