Dana Rubin

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Politics and International Studies, the Open University. My PhD research titled: 'Neoliberal Colonialism: Settling Israeli Citizenship in the West Bank' is supervised by Professor Engin Isin (OU), Professor John Clarke (OU) and Doctor Laleh Khalili (SOAS).

I received an MA with special distinction from Warwick University and the University of Amsterdam and graduated summa cum laude with a BFA from Tel Aviv University. My main research interests are: Near and Middle East politics, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, colonialism, neoliberalism, privatisation, racialisation, identity and community formation, consumption and citizenship and gated communities.

Besides academic life I am engaged in political activism and I enjoy reading poetry, belly dancing, swimming, gathering wild mushrooms and spending time with my relatives and friends.
