The Body That Writes: Reflections on the Process of Writing about Wartime Rape Avoidance in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
In the past few decades, the study of rape has focused on a variety of topics, such as the physical, psychological and cultural effects of different kinds of rape upon individuals and communities. Less attention has been given to the effects upon scholars themselves of studying rape. In this essay I would like to shift the focus from the studied phenomenon to the scholar who studies it, by focusing on my own work and its public response.
