The 2020 NDPS workshop calls for papers that creatively engage with questions about ownership. The workshop format facilitates intellectual exchange via pre-circulated papers, brief presentations, and extended discussions in panels over a two-day period. Invited senior and mid-career scholars usually chair panels and/or participate in discussions, while most presentation slots are reserved for younger scholars.

As with all NDPS workshops, proposals that put Palestinians at the center of the analysis are encouraged. We seek explorations of Palestinian experiences of different historical periods and locations—past and present, urban and rural, throughout historic Palestine and outside it—from the perspectives of various academic disciplines, as well as practitioners such as lawyers, urban planners, and artists.
