Israel’s occupation has been transformed in the age of digital
technologies. Today, all of the political players in the theater of
occupation rely on digital camera technologies and viral image circuits for
political claims making. Within the Jewish Israeli population, the
increased reliance on digital photographic technologies, and the spread of
photographic aptitudes, has grown alongside the right-wing radicalization.
This paper considers the interrelationship between these political and
technological processes, to consider the import of new visualization
technologies, photographic practices, and image-circuits, on the terms of
Israeli rule in in the Palestinian territories.


Dr. Rebecca Stein’s research studies linkages between cultural and
political processes in Israel in relation to its military occupation and
the history of Palestinian dispossession. She is the author of (with Adi
Kuntsman) Digital Militarism: Israel's Occupation in the Social Media Age
(Stanford University Press, 2015), which studies the interplay between new
media and military occupation in the Israel/Palestine context. She
continues to work on the way new communication technologies are meditating
the everyday Israeli relationship to its military occupation -- including
the ways such technologies are changing practices and logics of military
'counterinsurgency', altering the everyday terms of soldiering, changing
the Israeli civilian relationship to Palestinians under occupation, and
remaking the terrain of human rights work and anti-occupation activism
within Israel.


This seminar is organized by gate48-critical Israeli’s in the Netherlands
and
SECURCIT project (ERC) at the UvA
