Seminar with Re'ee Hagay and respondent Tamar Sella
In this seminar, Re'ee Hagay will describe the mourning interwoven into the process of writing Ahuva ʿOzeri's biography. The non-linear temporality of the mourning produced by the child mourner from Tel Aviv's Yemenite Quarter is juxtaposed with national representations of Yemeni Jews, constructed as an origin of Jewish homogeneity rooted in the past. Re'ee focuses on ʿOzeri's cinematic performance against the background of south Tel Aviv, revealing a twofold memory of loss, both Mizrahi and Palestinian. ʿOzeri emerges as a singer who drew on multiple resources of mourning positioned across putative national and regional borders of urban and global Southern geographies. ʿOzeri is narrated not only as a child mourner but also as the last mourner, in the face of progressive national time.
