Co-organised by Dr. Gil Pasternak (The University of Huddersfield) and Lior Libman (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem; The University of Leeds), ‘Insight Palestina’ will focus on visual and textual images produced within, and in relation to, the circumstances of the Israel-Palestine struggle. Its aim is to explore and challenge a range of current research approaches to photographic, cinematic, documentary, literary, fine art and other media images. It will look into academic studies and patterns of interpretation which tend to solidify exclusive perceptions of politicised images.
