12/31/11 For travel grants; 1/10/2012 For submission of all proposals.
Travel grants are being offered to scholars doing research on Israel Studies to attend a three day conference in Israel. In addition, qualified applicants are invited to submit proposals for papers, organized panels and discussion groups that deal with the critical issues of multiculturalism that confronts Israeli society in the past and today. The submissions should address the main questions to be discussed at the conference in Haifa:
* Does Israel constitute one society or many societies that are in basic conflict with each other?
* What are the ramifications of these relationships and how does the friction compare to that which exists in other countries and to global processes?
* How do those conflicts and modes of cooperation shape public policy, Israeli law, and sociopolitical structures?
Special preference will be given to submissions that examine major sociopolitical transformations, including the relationships between Arab-Palestinians and Jews before and after the State of Israel’s establishment. Papers on other topics relating to the broader field of Israel studies are also welcome. The committee strongly encourages scholars to submit panel proposals.
