Theorising power and resistance

This project is an analysis of how Israeli power forms Palestinian women as subjects, and how women in turn reject or resist that subjectification, at times violently. Approaching Palestinian women’s resistance to Israeli occupation from a bottom-up, non-state approach will result in a more full understanding of how Palestinian women come to be engaged in multiple acts of resistance. Such a framing has a clear lineage attributed to Michel Foucault.
