Conceptualizing Mobilities and
Producing Place in Palestine
Wednesday February 28th, 2018 at 6pm
Julie Peteet – University of Louisville, METU
With its broad scope and theoretical and methodological flexibility, the field of mobility studies provides an apt framework for approaching displacement and the production of space/place in Palestine. Mobility can be a lens through which we explore power, inequality and, in this case, occupation. For Palestinians, the organization of, and access to, space and mobility devolve from social and legal categories of difference.
Julie Peteet is Professor of Anthropology at Louisville University and a Fulbright Research Scholar in Turkey (2017-18) at METU. Her research has focused on Palestinian displacement, refugee camps, space and identity, and more recently mobilities and the policy of closure in the West Bank.
