Joshua Sabih

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: The Arab World and Israel/Palestine.
  • Disciplines:
  • Hebrew, Jewish & Israeli Studies: Culture, History, Literature,  Religion
  • Arab-Islamic Studies: Culture, Language, Literature, Philosophy, Religion
  • Medieval and Modern Biblical and Quranic Hermeneutics
  • Minorities in the Middle East and North Africa
  • Muslim and Jewish Diaspora

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.

I hold a doctor theologiae degree from the University of Copenhagen. I have studied at, inter alia, Manchester University (UK), Aarhus University(DK), Institut National des Langues and Civilisations Orientales (Paris), École Pratique des Hautes Études-Sorbonne (Paris)!I am currently preparing a new dr.habilitation at the Sorbonne with the following thesis: Mėmoire littéraire et identités critique:Samaritans et Karaïtes en Israël
