Series: In Her Majesty's Kingdom - Celebrating the Rich History of Anglo-Jewry
The notion of Jewish state in Israel has captured the imagination of British writers - for better and for worse - for centuries. In this session we will look at how conceptions of Israel have changed over time, and ask whether these tell us more about the Jewish state they are describing or the authors who are writing them.
