Borderland Levant: Transformative urban geographies in Amman and Tel Aviv-Jaffa
My research is about the potential of the coming together of spaces - overlaps, folds - and related border issues as materialisation of power relations, especially in urban areas. On the theoretical side the work draws on Etienne Balibar´s notion of "borderland". For the empirical part I am focusing on the so-called "Levant", and Amman and Tel Aviv-Jaffa in particular.
