Presentation: The Dilemma of Nationalism for Anti-militarist Activism

I am a cultural anthropologist researching the ways people navigate the ethical dilemmas they encounter during their everyday lives and their encounters with the state.  I am interested in liberalism and its discontents.

I am originally from New Paltz, New York.  I did my Ph.D. in Anthropology at Princeton University (2011). I joined the faculty of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Tel Aviv University in the fall of 2013.  I do my research in Israel and Palestine, using ethnographic methods.

This poster, here in its English version, was produced by one of the biggest and oldest pro-peace organizations in Israel, Peace Now.  It reflects a very common ideological approach among Jewish Israeli leftist activists, which is “pro-Israel, anti-occupation”.
