Friday Forum for Graduate Research: Yulia Gilichinskaya

Title: "Israel and Palestine: The Landscape of Separation"

The Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank not only live under the occupation of Israel but also, contained behind the Wall that Israel erected, populate a space of physical, social, and cultural isolation.  The Wall severs communities, people's access to services, livelihoods and religious and cultural amenities.  It fragments not only the land, but also the very social fabric of the Palestinian people.  

In a search for a landscape of hope, Yulia Gilichinskaya (Graduate Students, Film and Digital Media) through her research and artwork looks for ways to subvert the wallsand barriers, address the issue of separation, and to amend the dictated borders imposed on the Palestinians.  

"Friday Forum for Graduate Research" is a weekly interdisciplinary colloquium series for sharing graduate research across the humanities.  Join us for light refreshments and weekly presentations by your fellow graduate students.
