“Building Resilience”: (Re)defining and Negotiating Experiences of Home and Belonging along the Border of Israel and Gaza
Beyond the DSM: The Emotional Experience of Trauma and PTSD and the Culture of Jewish Psychiatry in Israel
Keren Friedman-Peleg is a senior lecturer and dean of students at the College of Management Academic Studies. A medical and psychological anthropologist, her research combines clinical questions of security-related trauma diagnosis, treatment, and prevention with socio-political questions of national belonging and inequality. At the Katz Center, she will focus on the national home and the private home in the context of threatened security.
Friedman-Peleg received her PhD from Tel-Aviv University. She was previously a visiting scholar at the Katz Center and a visiting assistant professor at UC Berkeley’s department of anthropology and Institute for Jewish Law and Israel Studies
