Middle East Studies


The conflict between Israel and Palestine has given rise to a plethora of unanswered questions, often associated with disputed narratives and ever-changing environment and geography. This multi-year project, led by Omer Bartov, seeks to provide a forum for a deeper understanding of the region and its peoples. Hosting international workshops, conferences, and visiting speakers from across the disciplines, the project asks: What makes for the bond between individuals and groups on the one hand, and a place, on the other, be it real or imagined, tangible as its stones or ephemeral as the hopes and longings it evokes.
