March 09, 2017

IMES would like to congratulate Dr. Ilana Feldman, Professor of Anthropology, History and International Affairs, on her receipt of the 2017 Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) Distinguished Scholar Award. 

The award is intended to recognize faculty members who have made significant contributions in scholarship to the university and society. Dr. Feldman’s research has focused on the Palestinian experience, both inside and outside of Palestine, examining practices of government, humanitarianism, policing, displacement, and citizenship. Her current project traces the Palestinian refugee experience with humanitarianism in the years since 1948, exploring the dynamics of long-term aid and the politics of living in the humanitarian condition.
