          Publication Description

          © Presses Universitaires de France. This paper considers the ways that differently situated communities of Israeli Jews have contended with the history of the Palestinian dispossession of 1948.1949 war. The analysis focuses on the ways this history is to formerly Palestinian things and proposes a shift away from a focus on questions of dispossession to those of repossession in order to take seriously the ways that appropriated Palestinian things carry meaning within an Israeli political matrix; to consider the ways Israeli memories attach themselves, or fail to attach, to these things; and to ask what such processes might tell us about quotidian Israeli technologies of settler.nationalism.

          Publication Description

          It is perhaps self-evident to suggest that military conquest shares something with tourism because both involve encounters with "strange" landscapes and people. Thus it may not surprise that the former sometimes borrows rhetorical strategies from the latter - strategies for rendering the strange familiar or for translating threatening images into benign ones. There have been numerous studies of this history of borrowing. Scholars have considered how scenes of battle draw tourist crowds, how soldiers' ways of seeing can resemble those of leisure travelers, how televised wars have been visually structured as tourist events (e.g., the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq), and how the spoils of war can function as a body of souvenirs. These lines of inquiry expand our understanding of tourism as a field of cultural practices and help us to rethink the parameters of militarism and warfare by suggesting ways they are entangled with everyday leisure practices. © 2008 Cambridge University Press.
