Raphael Greenberg is a senior lecturer in the field of archeology at Tel Aviv University. Currently, he is working on the West Bank and East Jerusalem Archeological Database Project, which lists the archeological sites that have been excavated by Israel in the West Bank and East Jerusalem since 1967.
As part of this project, he published a book entitled: Israeli Archeological Activity in the West Bank and East Jerusalem: A Sourcebook. His research focuses on two distinct fields: Early Bronze Age research, and the impact of archaeology in the present. His research covers questions such as the formation and dissolution of early urban societies in the Levant, long and mid-range interaction, migration and trade, and social and economic aspects of ceramic industries (most recently, the Kura-Araxes interaction sphere). Moreover, his work on archaeology in the present includes teaching and writing about community archaeology and the politics of the archaeology of ancient Jerusalem...
Contributors Rema Hammami, Suad Amiry, and Lila Abu-Lughod will read from Seeking Palestine and Mayssun Sukarieh will reflect on the ethics and social impact of speaking for Palestinians in Shatila, an over-researched refugee camp.
How do Palestinians live, imagine and reflect on home and exile in this period of a stateless and transitory Palestine, a deeply contested and crisis-ridden national project, and a sharp escalation in Israeli state violence and accompanying Palestinian oppression?
In Seeking Palestine, just published in the U.S., fifteen Palestinian writers, essayists, poets, novelists, critics, artists, memoirists respond with their reflections, experiences, memories, and polemics.
How can exile and home be written? Who speaks for Palestinians?
Please join the Center for Palestine Studies for a book discussion with Ahmad Amara, John Sheehan and Brinkley Messick.
