“Spatial manifestations of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in Jerusalem”: a talk by Wendy Pullan, 9/26

PLEASE NOTE RETURN TO ORIGINAL VENUE AT THE IAS NOW THAT THE STRIKE IS OVER. This talk will explore the broader question of whether cities that have experienced prolonged and intensive levels of conflict are characterized by particular spatial qualities (including boundaries, time warps, relational spaces, territorial identities). Using a range of examples, but focusing on the case of Jerusalem in particular, Professor Pullan investigates how policies and practices impact the city, including through mobility, infrastructure, and relationships between inner city historical neighborhoods and peripheral settlements. She argues that there are not only two divided peoples in Jerusalem, but two distinct spatialities that are not normally associated with conflict situations. Professor Pullan is a Reader in the Department of Architecture at the University of Cambridge and Director of the international Conflict in Cities Research Group. The Space&Place Collaborative also thanks the following sponsors of this event: the Mondale Law Center’s Human Rights Film Series, Brit TzedekV’Shalom, the Jewish Alliance for Justice and Peace, and St. Cloud State’s Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies and Jewish Studies. Cosponsored by The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, The Center for Jewish Studies, The College of Liberal Arts, The Department of Geography, and The Institute for Global Studies.
