Colonialism; Settler-Colonialism; Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Research Interests

My dissertation will be a historical reconsideration of the relationship between Israel and the Palestinians residing within it between the years 1948-1966. The dissertation chapters will shed light onto different and unexplored socio-cultural aspects of Palestinian daily life, and will try to assess their wider reverberation on the rest of Israeli society. The wider object of my research is to prove that the relationship between the State of Israel and the Palestinian population living within its borders featured both colonial and settler-colonial themes, narratives and political practices.
