The Department of Sociology in collaboration with the Centre for Post-Conflict Justice at TCD would like to invite you to a public lecture, Surveillance, Fear and Israeli Colonialism by Professor Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian of the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, a leading expert in the field of human rights and women’s rights in Israel/Palestine.

The lecture will discuss surveillance over colonized Palestinian subjects to argue that colonial dispossession functions in different layers. The presentation will use David Harvey’s concept “accumulation of dispossession” to claim that surveillance over living and dead bodies of the colonized, and the military control over their land, life and political economy, imposes new regimes of regulation and accumulation by dispossession, and veils the exploitative relationships between the colonized and the colonizer. Understanding the way Israel’s surveillance regime contributes to accumulation by dispossession will have a crucial bearing on the organization and articulation of dissent in the present.

The lecture is based on Dr Shalhoub-Kevorkian’s work on surveillance, securitization and social control in militarized zones.
