Schusterman Center for Israel Studies:

ONLINEThe Middle-Class Flight of Israel’s Arab Minority

January 19, 2023 Waltham

The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies invites you to join us for the first Schusterman Seminar of 2023, “Challenges of the Middle-Class Flight of the Arab Minority in Israel,” with Dr. Manal Totry-Jubran. In recent years we have witnessed the move of middle-class Arab families in Israel to Jewish cities that lack the facilities to provide them with cultural services. This presentation will examine the housing characteristics of these families, and the ways in which they change the spatial structure of the cities to which they move, as well as the effect of this process on mobilizing a new discourse of rights.

Dr. Manal Totry-Jubran is an associate professor at the Law faculty – Bar Ilan University. Her main fields of interest are: Law and Society, Legal Geography, Multiculturalism, Minority Rights, Planning and Building Law, and Local government. In 2018 she was selected by the “Calcalist” newspaper and “Bank Hapoalim” as one of ten Young Promising Arab leaders in Arab Society. In 2019 she was awarded the “Gorni Prize,” by the Israeli Association of Public Law young researchers for Excellent young researcher in public Law. In 2015 she was awarded the Ma’of scholarship for outstanding Arab students, The Council for Higher Education.

Free and open to all. This presentation is part of the Schusterman Seminars series, advanced seminars geared toward faculty and graduate students, and open to all, presenting the latest research in Israel Studies to the Schusterman Center community and beyond.
