Tel Aviv University

Tel Aviv University - Chen Misgav, a PhD student in Geography under the supervision of far-leftist Tovi Fenster, claims to be a figure in "Queer Geography," at least when he is not busy participating in the Boycott-Israel Movement and in anti-Israel Violent Protests

I am working on queer geographies and activism in Israel but my academic work doesn't deal with the Israel-Palestine conflict. However on the other hand my personal activist work has a lot to do with the fight against apartheid - I work with two activist groups: "Solidarity against the fascism" and "Anarchist against the wall", Many of the people in this two action groups, in particular the anarchists are queers. Some people from the anarchist started recently to distribute the BDS campaign call "Rfu$e" (you can find it on facebook) and I take part on it. So i can't help with academic articles (but will be happy to get what you have, i know the work of Butler and the BDS book by omar bargotti). This week from tomorrow to Saturday there will be an activist annual conference in the village of Bili'n - here is the program and i will go to the conference on the second day by myself, and probably to the Friday demonstration as well as I do almost every week:

Regards,
Chen Misgav

Dear Shaka,

I am working on queer geographies and activism in Israel but my academic work doesn't deal with the Israel-Palestine conflict. However on the other hand my personal activist work has a lot to do with the fight against apartheid - I work with two activist groups: "Solidarity against the fascism" and "Anarchist against the wall", Many of the people in this two action groups, in particular the anarchists are queers. Some people from the anarchist started recently to distribute the BDS campaign call "Rfu$e" (you can find it on facebook) and I take part on it. So i can't help with academic articles (but will be happy to get what you have, i know the work of Butler and the BDS book by omar bargotti). This week from tomorrow to Saturday there will be an activist annual conference in the village of Bili'n - here is the program and i will go to the conference on the second day by myself, and probably to the Friday demonstration as well as I do almost every week:

Quoting "Shaka McGlotten" <[log in to unmask]>:

Greetings,

A recent posting on this list about apartheid made me wonder about an area of relatively recent interest for me--the apartheid analogy in Israel/Palestine and the growing Boycott, Divestments and Sanctions Movement. I'm familiar with a range of work by Jasbir Puar, Judith Butler, John Greyson, as well as a recent issue of GLQ. I also know a couple of members of my anthropology cohort from graduate school who have worked on this issue. But I'd like to know more. Are there folks on the list working on this topic? Do people have particular recommendations for academic and activist resources? On or or offlist responses are welcome.

 My warm regards,
