Rachel Brown Public Talk: Migrant Domestic Workers in Israel/Palestine

4:30 PM
"Migrant Domestic Workers in Israel/Palestine: Organizing Amidst Permanent Temporariness and Territorial Expansion" Dr. Rachel H. Brown Assistant Professor, Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies, Washington University in St. Louis.
This talk examines the politics of resistance to worker exploitation among migrant domestic workers in Israel/Palestine, where migrant workers are both “permanently temporary,” holding no path to citizenship, and where the “host” government is continually undertaking a project of territorial expansion. Based upon interviews with Filipina, Indian, Nepalese and Sri Lankan domestic workers, it examines how migrant domestic workers build networks of mutual aid and strategically choose when to adopt rhetoric human rights that connects their struggles to that of other marginalized populations in Israel. The talk suggests what U.S. citizen-allies can learn from the case of migrant worker organizing for human rights in Israel/Palestine about solidarity efforts with migrant workers in other areas of territorial contestation where migrants are “permanently temporary.”
Dr. Brown's lecture will be followed by discussion/Q&A.
