UK Goldsmiths College hosts a seminar by Adi Ophir & Sari Hanafi "The Power of Inclusive Exclusion". Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian at GMU, March 3rd




Centre for Research Architecture - Goldsmith College, University of London

Adi Ophir and Sari Hanafi: The Power of Inclusive Exclusion

The Centre for Research Architecture is proud to host a seminar to mark the publication of the book:

The Power of Inclusive Exclusion: Anatomy of Israeli Rule in the Occupied Palestinian Territories

Edited by Adi Ophir, Michal Givoni and Sari Hanafi,
The book is published by Zone Books, 2009

The seminar, with co-editors and contributors Adi Ophir and Sari Hanafi and chaired by Eyal Weizman will take place on Monday March 1st at Goldsmiths' Research Architecture studio RHB312 (main building, second floor) between 1400-1600.

The Power of Inclusive Exclusion analyzes the Israeli occupation as a rationalized system of political rule. With essays by leading Palestinian and Israeli scholars, a comprehensive chronology, photographs, and original documents, this groundbreaking book address the fundamental and contemporary dimensions of the occupation regime—its unpredictable bureaucratic apparatus, the fragmentation of space and regulation of movement, the intricate tapestry of law and regulations, the discriminatory control over economic flows and the calculated use of military violence. In a time when military occupations are emerging globally, political disasters abound, and protracted control over groups of noncitizens has been normalized, The Power of Inclusive Exclusion provides a new set of categories crucial to our understanding of emergency regimes and identifies what is at stake for an informed and timely opposition.

Sari Hanafi is Associate Professor of Sociology at American University of Beirut, and is the author of The Emergence of A Palestinian Globalized Elite: Donors, International Organizations and Local NGOs.

Adi Ophir is Professor of Philosophy and Political Theory at the Cohn Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas at Tel Aviv University. He is the author of The Order of Evils: Toward and Ontology of Morals (Zone Books, 2005) and other books.

The event is organized as a seminar and would therefore ask participants to prepare by reading:
1. Intro - The Power of Inclusive Exclusion
2. Sari Hanafi, Palestinian Refugee Camps in the Palestinian Territory:
Territory of Exception and Locus of Resistance
3. Adi Ophir, The Order of Violence




Middle East Studies Program Presents Scholarly Lecture

February 24, 2010

The Middle East Studies Program will present Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian, professor at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, who will lecture on Wednesday, March 3, at 1 p.m. in the Johnson Center, Third Floor Meeting Room A.

Her topic is “Trapped Bodies and Lives: The Politics of Everydayness in Palestine.”

The protracted historical experience of occupation, annexation and displacement of Jerusalem’s Palestinian inhabitants has shaped relationships between place, space, identity politics, nationality and gender constructions in the city.

Shalhoub-Kevorkian’s presentation will shed light on the ways in which individuals and their families perceive their trapped bodies and lives as lying both “inside” and “outside” the contexts of violence, displacement and eviction.

Shalhoub-Kevorkian’s main theoretical and research interest has focused on the study of women in conflict zones, primarily in Palestine. Her new book is titled “Militarization and Violence Against Women in Conflict Zones in the Middle East: The Palestinian Case-Study” (Cambridge University Press, 2009).
