The Many (Im)possibilities of Contemporary Algerian Judaïtés

(p.63) The Many (Im)possibilities of Contemporary Algerian Judaïtés

Samuel Sami Everett

Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines ways of thinking and acting about algerianités — a range of ways of belonging to Algeria, as locality or as culture — and how these intersect with judaïtés that are anchored within affective and political-historical positions. This chapter draws primarily from textual production by Algerian Jews as well as interviews with Parisian intellectuals of Algerian descent, such as Benjamin Stora and Shmuel Trigano, and is informed by the transnational impact of discursive constructs of nationhood prompted by key moments such as the Algerian civil war of the 1990s, the fiftieth anniversary of independence in 2012 and the supposed rise of Muslim anti-Semitism in France since 2001.

Keywords:   France-Algeria, Benjamin Stora, Shmuel Trigano, judaïtés, algerianités
