ISA's 55th Annual Convention Spaces and Places Geopolitics in an Era of Globalization

Wednesday, 26 March 2014 (All day) - Saturday, 29 March 2014 (All day)
Toronto, Canada

Dana Rubin will present her paper 'Haredi Settlers: the Non‐Zionist Jewish Settlers of the West Bank'  in panel SD62: Frontier Logics: Settler Colonialism in Israel/Palestine.

This panel examines how perspectives drawn from settler-colonial studies can inform studies of Israeli and Palestinian politics. From the movements of West Bank settlers to the founding national narratives of Israel, there are many parallels to be drawn between the Israeli polity and other settler-colonial spaces. Papers in this panel examine and interrogate the multiple perspectives informing settler/indigenous relations in Israel/Palestine. How do the unique domestic/international dynamics of settler colonialism inform relationships between Israelis, Palestinians, and the broader international community? What is the relationship of the State of Israel to settlers along its borderlands and frontiers? How are acts of sovereignty enacted both within Israel and in the occupied territories? What is the position of Palestinians in this context? How do transnational networks of settler-colonial state-building inform Israel's current geography of international alliances? What is the role of liberal ideologies in reproducing the on-going erasure of settler-colonial relations in Israel/Palestine? What is the relationship between indigenous and Palestinian struggles for self-determination?
