Project Summary

My research focuses on female British perceptions of Palestinian Arab and Jewish communities in Palestine during the British Mandate (1920-1948), specifically the extent to which British women (missionaries, teachers, nurses and the wives of colonial officials) viewed the Palestinian Arabs as the ‘uncivilised Other’ and the Jews as ‘civilised’, superior colonial subjects.
