Foreign Litewratures Ben-Gurion-University of the Negev Beer-Sheva, Israel
Sociologists and cultural theorists in Britain have recently engaged in a discourse that eliminates Jews as a nation, while disapora has been redefined as a heterogenous bonding of multiethnic hybridity. This paper relates these developments to the perception of Jews in the debate over the nation and nationalism, in the context of race discourse. Comparison is made with responses to European unification in Italy and Poland.
