Description - Israeli Culture and Emergency Routine: Normalizing Stress by Vered Weiss

Israeli Culture and Emergency Routine: Normalizing Stress explores the ways stress associated with a prolonged state of war, traumas, and emergency routine produces Israeli culture. Israeli Culture and Emergency Routine exposes the ways Israeli “emergency routine” leads to perpetual stress and trauma that are overwhelmingly present in the cultural production of Israeli art and literature. The nine chapters engage with a variety of Israeli cultural artifacts, including poetry, prose, film and graphic novels, and cast a wide temporal net, reaching from as early as the 1960s to 2019. In doing so, the collection sheds light upon the ramifications of the constant stress of the Israeli emergency routine on academic and cultural discourses and alerts us to be attentive to the effects of the physical world on the formulation of our world view within our social and political reality.
