I would like to organize a session panel that would deal with issues of Sephardic identity and belonging. One facet of my work centers on the Sephardic concept of homeland through an exploration of contemporary literature, interviews, and archival material in Ladino. I am particularly interested in how the Sephardim have created their own creative sense of exile through various affiliations with different cities of diaspora. I am looking for two paper presenters, a chair and a discussant for the session. I am open to ideas.
