About me

Thesis: (TBD) 'Multitudes of Denial in a Settler-Colonial State'

I am interested in denial as a feature of settler-colonialism, the multi-layered form it acquired within Israeli society, and how it operates in the Israeli-Palestinian context. Since denial is not monolithic nor stable, and it exerts both external and internal powers, I am also concerned with the question of how denial is accomplished and maintained.

Research interests

  • Israel – Palestine
  • Postcolonial critique
  • Denial as a sociological phenomenon
  • Human rights
