Research interests / activities:

Esther’s PhD research project is looking at intersectional politics of human and animal rights in Israel-Palestine and the workings of settler colonialism. Her thesis weaves in ethnography, phenomenology and affect to tease out the challenges and possibilities of intersectional activism in the context of a war zone. Her research interests lie more broadly in cultural studies, politics, feminist theory, and ethnographic research.
