Netta van Vliet

Netta van Vliet is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Religion and Women’s Studies at College of the Atlantic, in Bar Harbor, ME. She received her Ph.D. from Duke University in July 2012, with specialization in Israeli state formation and Zionist history. Her work is located in the interstices of feminist and postcolonial theory, psychoanalysis, anthropology, critical theory and Israel and Jewish studies. Her current book project, On the Israeli-Jewish Question, considers the implications of understanding Israel as an instantiation of the historical legacy of the philosophical binary of the Athenian and the Hebraic that can be traced through European Enlightenment and Jewish Enlightenment (Haskalah) to subsequent theorizations of the nation-state.
