borders and boundaries: the contest for jerusalem - Leonhard-Woltjer StichtingLecture by Dr. Nayrouz Abu Hatoum
Leonhard-Woltjer Visiting Scholar at Utrecht University
Jerusalem is at the heart of Palestinian and Israeli nationalisms. The 1967 Israeli military occupation imprinted a long-lasting political, social and urban transformation in the city. Between Israeli state discourses of unification and policies of segregation, the city fell into an abyss of contradictions. This lecture explores these contradictions through the historical trajectory of the city as seen from the point of view of its marginalized Palestinian communities. The lecture also maps out Palestinians' resistance through dwelling practices as a means to claim the city.
Nayrouz Abu Hatoum is an anthropologist and a visiting fellow in the Department of History and Art History at Utrecht University.
The program will be moderated by Dr. Peter Malcontent (Utrecht University), with a response by Dina Zbeidy, MA (University of Amsterdam)
