Between Books and Rifles: Palestinian School Girls Talk Back

Prof. Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian is the Lawrence D. Biele Chair in Law at the Faculty of Law-Institute of Criminology and the School of Social Work and Public Welfare at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Based on three interrelated theoretical frameworks—institutional racism, settler colonialism and security and biblical reasoning- what Professor Shalhoub-Kevorkian defines as security theology- the presentation will examine the invasion of the girl child body and space in Occupied East Jerusalem (OEJ).
