Occupied by Instagram: Israeli Military Rule in the Social Media Age

A talk by Dr. Rebecca Stein Nicholas, J. and Theresa M. Leonardy Associate Professor of Cultural Anthropology Author of Itineraries in Conflict:
Israelis, Palestinians, and the Political Lives of Tourism (Duke, 2008) and the coeditor of Palestine, Israel, and the Politics of Popular Culture
(Duke, 2005) with Ted Swedenburg and The Struggle for Sovereignty: Palestine and Israel, 1993-­‐2005 with Joel Beinin (Stanford, 2006).

Dr. Stein will consider the interplay between new media technologies and Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories (1967-­‐present), with a focus on the ways that the Israeli military and militarized Israeli publics are employing social media to support and sustain
Israel military rule. She asks, “how is Israeli militarism, in state and civilian hands, being transformed in the age of digital media?”
