Lecture by Amahl A. Bishara RI '17

Palestinian citizens of Israel and Palestinians of the West Bank share aspects of their political identities, expressive cultures, and cultural norms, and each group lives under Israeli sovereignty, albeit with different legal statuses. Despite these similarities, organized political interaction between them is scant. To understand this puzzle, Amahl Bishara ethnographically examines the different conditions for political expression and action for each group.
