Streetwise Hebrew & Arabic –

Streetwise Hebrew & Arabic - Guy Sharett (גיא שרת) / /

What can we learn from looking at road signs, street signs and restaurant menus in Israel? We'll be looking at Hebrew and Arabic one next to the other. We'll find translation that doesn't translate, political transliteration and we'll analyse the place of Hebrew, Arabic and English in Israeli identity as it seems from textual graffiti, manhole covers and lost pet ads.
