Language and land in Jewish national identity
National identities rely on the historical relationship between language and territory. However, some diaspora communities like the Jews have shaped their national identity in a displaced homeland and through communities speaking different languages. The EU-funded HOME-LANG project will examine the link between language, identities and exile amongst German-Jewish thinkers of the 20th century to understand the exact relationship between mother tongue and homeland, as well as the role of gender in this conceptual pair. The project will explore the role of historical events such as the Shoah and the establishment of the State of Israel in reshaping this relationship.
