PROVERBS AS A MEDIATING FORM IN THE STUDY OF SLAVERY [Abstract ID: 0507-01]
The present paper focuses on the use of proverbs and sayings in the study of the sensitive subject of past time slavery. Based on fieldwork conducted both in Israel and in Ethiopia, the potency of the proverb as a mediating genre will be demonstrated. In this presentation I will present and discuss the richness of the interpretive scope, as well as issues related to the ethnographic space.
