Aims (from the Call for Papers)

Against the backdrop of a lacking institutionalisation of Palestine Studies at European
universities, the workshop will offer an excellent opportunity for advanced MA students, PhD
candidates, and early career researchers from European universities to present and to discuss
one’s own work. It thus aims at providing a space to discuss research projects as well as the
current research environment in order
(1) to develop new ideas about alternative, reflexive ways of producing critical knowledge on
Palestine and
(2) to provide a starting point for establishing a network of PhD students and researchers that
can be further elaborated and institutionalized.
