Call for Proposals

The Sophie Davis Learning Community is meant to bring together scholars and activists looking into questions of gender, conflict resolution and peace from diverse disciplines and perspectives. We aim to create a scholarly community that will develop various creative and innovative collaborations around these themes. The community will meet once a month to discuss a specific concept. Each meeting will feature three to five short presentations (10-15 min) and then open the stage for Q&A, followed by general discussion about the concept, its place and meaning in our research, activism, and lived experiences.
Please note: Unless otherwise advertised, the events will take place in Hebrew.
Our first event, Hope, Gender, and Conflict Resolution (see enclosed), will take place on Monday,
Dec 19, 2016, 2:00-3:30pm, Room 501, Beit Maiersdorf, Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
We invite you to submit presentation proposals for the upcoming meetings, focusing on Kavod (כבוד), Translation (תרגום), Compassion (חמלה), and Belonging (שייכות).
Proposals should be 100-150w (English), directly engage with the meeting’s concept (see below), and sent to: Dr. Tal Nitsán ( )
Deadline for the January meeting is Dec 18. For the rest: Dec 30.
