Rebecca L. Stein

Her biography noted that "I am the coeditor of two recent volumes: Palestine, Israel, and the Politics of Popular Culture (Duke University Press, 2005) with Ted Swedenburg and The Struggle for Sovereignty: Palestine and Israel, 1993-2005 (Stanford University Press, 2006) with Joel Beinin and the author of Itineraries in Conflict: The Political Life of Tourism in Israel and the Middle East which considers the relationship between tourism and nation-making in Israel during the Oslo Process of the 1990s (Duke University Press, forthcoming). I am currently working on a new project entitled Repossessions: The Social Life of Palestinian Things in Contemporary Israel that examines the history and circulation of Palestinian objects in Jewish-Israeli daily lives – both objects acquired during the course of the Palestinian dispossession and those purchased by Israelis in the wake of state-formation. I am interested in what daily objects and acts of repossession might tell us about Israeli identity and nation-making. My work on Israeli cultural politics has appeared in such journals as Social Text, Public Culture, Theory and Event, Journal of Palestine Studies, and Middle East Report." [1]
