Cédric Cohen Skalli
Dr. Cedric Cohen Skalli teaches early modern and modern Jewish Philosophy at the University of Haifa. His research focuses on the relationship of Jewish thinkers to two main philosophical shifts: the shift from Medieval philosophy to early modern thought (14th-17th century), and the shift from early modern to modern thought (18th-20th century). He published three books and 16 articles on diverse aspects of Jewish thought and literature in the Renaissance and several essays on the question of translation and Sprachdenken in early 20th century philosophy. He is also translator of many works of Freud, Benjamin, Scholem, Idel and Abravanel.
Dr. Arie Dubnov
Born in Israel in 1977, Dr. Arie Dubnov studied at IASA, the Israel Art and Science Academy in Jerusalem, followed by a year of voluntary community service at the Israeli Society for the Protection of Nature.
His early academic life was spent primarily at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and included also an academic exchange year as G.L. Mosse Fellow at UW-Madison, where he decided to focus on modern intellectual history. His PhD dissertation examined the intellectual development of Sir Isaiah Berlin, reappraising his liberal philosophy by addressing the very ambivalent relationship between his activities as a British philosopher and diplomat and his ongoing support of Zionism. He has published a few essays on the subject together with the book, Isaiah Berlin: The Journey of a Jewish Liberal (Palgrave-Macmillan,2012). His current research projects looks at interwar British intellectual responses to nationalism, partition and population exchanges, examining figures such as Reginald Coupland, Arnold Toynbee, Lewis Namier and others.
He spent four years at Stanford’s History department, writing and teaching courses in modern intellectual and Jewish history before moving to the University of Haifa, where he currently serves as a Senior Lecturer at the School of History. He is a strong believer in the importance of building bridges that will connect Jewish and Israeli history with European as well as Middle Eastern histories.
