New under the sun: Jews and climate in Palestine 1897-1948
This talk is situated at the intersection of modern Jewish history, climate and environmental history, history of expertise, and colonial history and it focuses on the role of climate – as an abstract concept and a concrete condition - in shaping Jewish national, racial, cultural, and spatial identity in Palestine from the establishment of the Zionist Organisation in 1897 to the founding of the State of Israel in 1948.
