    Israeli literature has long been dominated by Ashkenazi authors. Likewise, Israeli school curriculums often dismiss the work of Mizrahi authors (those of non-European descent) from the canon. But today, a new generation of Mizrahi writers are determined to carve out their own space, and perhaps even change the landscape of Israel’s literary scene. Reflecting on her own work and those like her, Ayelet Tsabari will shed light on the changing face of Israeli literature, and introduce some of the new Mizrahi voices who are making their mark.
