My interest lies in the history of mandate Palestine, the sociology of Palestinian knowledge and the cultural aspects of the Palestinian-Zionist conflict. In particular, I examine the evolution process of both national movements, the Palestinian and the Zionist, as inseparable from one another and as evolving through a constant dialogue, conscious or unconscious, with the national other. My D.Phil. (Oxford University, 2015) focused on teaching history in mandate Palestine. The study examined its role in the creation of a national identity or a collective consciousness within the colonial settings, and the manner in which the Palestinian-Zionist conflict wrote itself into the history textbook. My MA thesis, a political biography of Musa Kazim pasha al-Husseini (Tel Aviv University, 2011) is soon to be published as book.
