Memory activism: reimagining the past for the future in Israel-Palestine

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Set in Israel in the first decade of the twenty-first century and based on long-term fieldwork, this ethnographic study offers an analysis of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It explores practices of "memory activism" by three groups of Jewish-Israeli and Arab-Palestinian citizens -- Zochrot, Autobiography of a City, and Baladna -- showing how they appropriated the global model of truth and reconciliation while utilizing local cultural practices such as tours and testimonies.
