Homeland Conflict and Identity for Palestinian and Jewish Israeli Americans
Weinzimmer examines various ways that homeland conflict affects the diasporic identities of first and second generation Jewish Israeli Americans and Palestinian Americans. Her work builds upon central tenets of conflict theory, collective memory and transnationalism literature, and narrative methodologies. Perceptions of homeland conflict are analyzed from multiple sources: past experiences; family stories; group-level accounts; media coverage; and homeland contacts. Homeland conflict proves to be a constitutive element of identity for both generations within each group, with differences observed not only by generational status but also according to the nature of each group's experiences in both the homeland and the host country.
