Beholding the Holy City: The Davidization of Jerusalem

Description:
This talk depicts a new spatial and visual regime in Jerusalem embraced by the tourism and real estate industries, with a focus on the Tower of David as the new icon. The davidization of Jerusalem is linked to political shifts such as the decline of the peace process and Israels Judaizing mission for the area, primarily the Holy Basin. Dana Hercbergs is a Visiting Assistant Professor with the Gildenhorn Institute for Israel Studies. Her research focuses on Arab and Jewish encounters and identities in the Middle East particularly in Jerusalem, and mobilities associated with tourism and travel in Israel/Palestine. {Will appear in FYI on Nov 14, 2013
