The Origins of the Diamond Industry in Mandate Palestine
Wilkins Terrace Restaurant (pre-lecture reception) / Chadwick lecture theatre (lecture) |
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
David De Vries, Tel Aviv University
Based on previously unexamined historical documents found in archives in Belgium, England, Israel, the Netherlands, and the United States, the book on which this lecture is based is the first in English to tell the story of the formation of one of the world's main strongholds of diamond production and trade in Palestine during the 1930s and 1940s. The history of the diamond-cutting industry, characterized by a long-standing Jewish presence, is discussed as a social history embedded in the international political economy of its times.
The pre-lecture reception starts at 6:15pm in the Terrace Restaurant (Wilkins Building), and will be followed by the lecture at 6.45pm in the Chadwick Lecture Theatre (Chadwick Building).
