Sayed Kashua: Seriously Satirical
Institute For Middle East Studies
Please join us for a discussion with Kashua, who will screen a recent episode of his popular series Arab Labor (Avoda Aravit), now in its third season. Following the screening Kashua will discuss his life and work in an audience Q&A.
Sayed Kashua is a talented and ambitious writer with a top-rated television sitcom, a satirical column in Israel’s oldest newspaper Haaretz, and multiple award-winning novels to his credit. But as an Arab citizen of Israel, Kashua is persistently called upon to justify his work, specifically his decision to address Jewish audiences by writing in Hebrew.
