Borders, Walls, and other Possibilities: Theorizing Gender in Conflicted Spaces

Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Mon, 18/02/2019 to Wed, 20/02/2019

The reality in which we exist, nurture and maintain relationships, as well as create and disseminate knowledge, is shaped, marked and defined by layers of ongoing and intersecting conflicts. Consequently, much of our everyday life is exercised and navigated through un/seen borders and boundaries. While these are often seen as barriers, we would like to suggest addressing them as opportunities to enhance human wellbeing, relationships and knowledge.
