Between Government and Humanitarianism: Conflict and Citizenship in the Gaza Strip
Thursday, Nov. 19, 7 p.m.
Ostrove Auditorium, Diamond Building

Current research by Professor Ilana Feldman of George Washington University includes work on policing and security and humanitarianism. In the first project she is examining the impact of policing practices on conceptions of citizenship in Gaza. In the second, she is tracing the Palestinian experience in humanitarianism in the years since 1948 in order to explore both how this dynamic has shaped Palestinian social and political life and how the Palestinian experience has influenced the broader post-war humanitarian regime.
