Theodor Herzl: From Jewish Politics to Geo-Politics

Start: Jun 16, 2016 06:30 PM


Derek Penslar


Thursday June 16th

IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE JEWISH HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF ENGLAND


Herzl

This talk is about two interrelated questions: what did Theodor Herzl think about the world; and what did the world think about Herzl? Herzl was well-versed in global affairs, was on friendly terms with a number of European senior politicians, and over the course of his short Zionist career managed to meet monarchs, emperors, and the Pope. Although Herzl devoted the final decade of his life to Zionism he was deeply immersed in national, imperial and colonial politics, and that level of engagement does much to explain why he was able to gain access to, and at times leave a positive impression upon, some of the world’s most powerful individuals.

Derek Penslar is Professor of Israel Studies at Oxford University.
