Yehouda Shenhav-Shahrabani

Yehouda Shenhav is a professor of sociology and anthropology at Tel Aviv University, and is editor of the sociological book series Theory & Criticism in Context. Shenhav’s academic work on nationalism and ethnicity attempts to undercut the logic and assumptions of methodological Zionism. Shenhav, who defines himself as an Arab–Jew, translates prose from Arabic to Hebrew under his old Iraqi name: Shahrabani. Among his translations are She, Me and the Autumn and Memory Talked to Me and Walked Away by Salman Natour; and White Faces, The Journey of Little Gandhi and A Bundle of Secrets by Elias Khoury.
