The Center for Palestine Studies invites you to a seminar on "Disputed Waters: Governing Water and Struggling for Citizenship in Nazareth," a paper by Dr. Leena Dallasheh, historian and postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Palestine Studies.
This paper uses the processes of water management in Nazareth from the late Mandate period in the 1940s through the early years of Israeli statehood to consider how struggles over the control and development of this basic resource shaped the interaction between the new state and the locals, defining not just the reach of the state but issues of citizenship and identity for the Palestinians.
Following a brief paper introduction, the seminar will open up to discussion.
Kindly note, "Disputed Waters: Governing Water and Struggling for Citizenship in Nazareth" will be pre-circulated.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with "CPS Seminar" in the title to RSVP and receive a copy of the paper. Papers will be distributed on [November 21, 2012].
Light refreshments will be served.
