Sephardic Women's Voices: Out of North Africa (Paperback)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Sephardic women's writings present invaluable information about the marginalization and silencing of the Jewish experience in France and North Africa. These stories offer testaments of a generally excluded human experience that belongs in the diverse and hybrid collection of post-colonial stories of displaced peoples. Once their narratives are located and appreciated for their literary and historical value, it becomes clear that they need to be incorporated into a larger movement within the Jewish historical and cultural trajectory. These stories by seven different women afford an opportunity to (re-)discover the voices and experiences of the North African Jews.
