Joshua Sabih

Associate Professor

I am a trans-disciplinary scholar whose education, teaching, research and expertise cover a variety of interrelated fields of inquiry:

  1. Area Studies:
  • Middle Eastern & North African Studies:
  • Expertise by country:
  • Levant: Israel and Palestine
  • North Africa: Algeria, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia
  • Disciplines:
  • Hebrew, Jewish & Israeli Studies: Culture, History, Literature,  Philosophy of Religion, Political-Theology
  • Religious and Ethnic Minorities in Israel and the Muslim World
  • Muslim-Jewish Relations, Israel-Palestine Relations
  • Modern Arab-Islamic Studies: Culture, Language, Literature, Philosophy, Religion, Theology, Law
  • Medieval and Modern Biblical and Quranic Hermeneutics
  • Muslim and Jewish Diaspora
  • Zionism, Post-Zionism and Postcolonial Studies

I have dedicated a number of years to the issue of Muslim-Jewish relations, in particular the notions of Arab-Jew and Mizrahim, their genesis and representations in contemporary political, philosofical and religious discourses and scholarship, particularly in Postcolonial Studies.
