The symposium will bring together scholars and activists representing or researching various communities of the Negev/Naqab: unrecognized Bedouin villages, lone farms, residents of development towns and more. The first session will focus on theoretical perspectives, the second on practical initiatives, for example: the demand to recognize the status of and grant privileges to the children of the founding generation in development towns following the example of kibbutzim; relationships between new and longtime residents of the area; processes of expulsion and demands for recognition; as well as questions of space, class and democracy.
The talks at the symposium will be delivered in Hebrew.
The symposium will take place on Tuesday, January 17th 2017, 16:00 – 20:00, in room 496 in Gilman Building, Tel Aviv University.
Admission is free, the public is invited!
