Title: Religion and Everyday Nationalism Among Palestinian Refugees in Jordan.

Based on two-years of ethnographic research in The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Professor Perez will focus on the politics of everyday nationhood among Palestinian refugees. Professor Perez will examine how Islam and nation combine to form particular ideas about the Palestinian homeland, people, and struggle and how these claims underscore the importance of understanding nationalism in the context of everyday discourse and practices.
