I am seeking participants and papers for a panel on social, political, and cultural boundaries and boundary making in the Zionist Yishuv. This could include work on the analysis, perception, depiction, destruction or creation of boundaries in the areas of political policy, language, labor organization, religion, art, literature, or other areas. The panel will focus on the basis and strength of boundaries as indicators of socio-political goals, values, and challenges in this period and their ramifications for future periods. The goal of this panel is to foster conversation and connections on the latest research in Israel Studies on the pre-state period.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in presenting a paper or serving as a chair or respondent. I am open to revising the panel proposal to fit more closely with participants’ interests. Since I am a graduate student this panel needs at least one presenter who is a faculty, so faculty proposals are especially welcome. Thanks in advance.
