    Religion in Contemporary Israel: Haredi Varieties

    Abstract

    Until recently, Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) Jews in Israel were mainly examined through the lens of the “isolated enclave model.” Yet the Haredi sector has undergone radical changes in a wide array of social and cultural spheres. Many of the traits that exemplified Israeli yeshiva fundamentalism at its inception, such as uncompromising dedication to Torah study, the exclusion

    The Start-Up Nation: Myths and Reality

    Erez Maggor, Michal Frenkel
    Abstract

    How did Israel become a “Start-Up Nation” – the Silicon Valley of the Middle East? In this chapter we argue that, in contrast to existing narratives, the rise of Israel’s high-tech sector was the result of a state-led project that dates to the 1970s and originated within the context of Israel’s corporatist economy. Building on emerging scholarship on the topic as well

    Memory for forgetfulness: Conceptualizing a memory practice of settler colonial disavowal

    Abstract

    This article articulates a sociological conception of settler colonial remembering as a tool of legitimation. Theories of memory in the context of settler colonialism generally center counter-memories by the subaltern or colonized, or official hegemonizing representations at the level of state institutions. Underexamined is the dialectical nature of memory and discursive

    Gender-Intersectional Regimes: How Gender & Nationality Shape Peace Initiatives in Israel-Palestine

    Abstract

    Building on research that considers women’s roles an essential part of peacebuilding, this paper argues that a gender-national intersectionality perspective is needed to better understand the field of peace organizing. Exploring this in the context of intractable conflict in Israel-Palestine allows us to see how the intersection of gender and nationality uniquely affects

    Bodies at Home? Religious Women Spaces and the Emergence of Intersectional Liminal Identities

    Michal Frenkel, Varda Wasserman
    Abstract

    The paper examines the inequality regime of ultra-orthodox colleges in Israel and the ways female students interpret and experience the gender segregation within the colleges and develop their identities around it. We demonstrate how the gender segregation constitutes three types of liminality – spatial, social and epistemic – that allow ultra-orthodox women to move

    Ivory Tower or Tower of Babel? The challenge of multilingualism for the globally embedded university

    Abstract

    Higher education organizations in countries where English is not the native tongue must function in a multilingual mode, using English as their primary language for scientific exchange and academic publication and relying on the native language for instruction and administration. When operating in a multilingual mode of communication and identity expression, a

    “Where Do You Draw the Line?”: Working Out the Boundaries between “Art” and “Non-Art” in Life Drawing Classes

    Rotem Steinbock, Yehuda C Goodman
    Abstract

    Based on participant observations in life drawing classes at an art academy in Jerusalem, this article examines the diverse ways artists-in-the-making work out the boundaries between “art” and “non-art.” First, the classes serve as a rite of passage in which actors deploy discursive, spatial, and sensorial practices to relate to and represent the live model as a unique
