The Role

The Department of Geography at Durham University seeks to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate for 33 months to work on the research project ‘Occupation Debris: Participatory Practices and Decolonisation of Archaeology in Palestine-Israel’. Occupation Debris is led by Dr Noam Leshem and funded under the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and runs from January 15th 2023 to December 31st 2025. The project seeks new ways to enable displaced communities, who are physically unable to access their ancestral lands, to renew a sense of ownership over their tangible cultural heritage and assert their agency over its use.

The successful candidate will join an existing team of researchers in the UK and the Middle East, and will lead a participatory research process with members of a displaced Palestinian community in Lebanon. The process will make use of an emerging material archive from the first-ever archaeological excavation of a depopulated Palestinian village, and will work closely with members of the community to consider how this archive might be used. This will be carried out with close collaboration with the Institute for Palestine Studies in Beirut, the project partner in Lebanon.

The aim of Occupation Debris project is to answer two core questions: (1) How can displaced communities regain access to hard-to-reach sites of material heritage, and assert agency over its future use? (2) Can participatory research open new possibilities for collaborative knowledge production and dialogue, specifically in environments that are still contending with conflict and enmity?

The post holder will help the PI and other members of the team to design a 2-year participatory process with community members in Lebanon, and will be responsible for leading and executing a series of workshops, outreach and dissemination activities.
