Circulating Zion: Global Photojournalism and the Making of a Jewish Nation

27 November, 2023 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


This talk examines the role of international photojournalism in the history of Zionist politics. It shows that photographs circulating globally were of particular importance to the protagonists of Zionist public relations both in Palestine and worldwide. Their voices and those of international news editors, photographers and journalists show that while international journalism would correct the dominant perception of Palestine as a Christian and Oriental space, it also led to an appropriation of Palestine for a variety of new political purposes.

Dr Rebekka Grossmann

Rebekka Grossmann is Assistant Professor of Migration History at Leiden University. Her research focuses on the intersections of international Jewish politics, global visual culture and migratory mobility. Her first monograph, Unsettled Cameras: Photography, Mobility, and Nation in Jewish History, 1918-1948, currently under review for publication, locates photography in the study of Jewish territorial nationalism. It argues that international visual culture shaped by migratory mobility and media globalization actively influenced the thinking about modern Jewish belonging. Aspects of her research have been published for example in Jewish Social Studies, the Leo Baeck Institute Yearbook and Israel Studies.
