Sophie Schor’s work focuses on the intersection of nonviolent civil resistance and feminist movements in Israel/Palestine. Her research interests include spatial politics, critical political theory, language, and community-based research approaches. Her previous work includes a historical ethnography of feminist peace movements in Israel, focusing on Women Wage Peace; a critical reading of Hebrew language textbooks; and an analysis of bus-routes and borders in Jerusalem. She was a member of the first ever women’s group of Combatants for Peace, and served on the steering committee of Sumud Freedom Camp in the South Hebron Hills in the occupied Palestinian territories.
