A record of Brian Barber's residencies in East Jerusalem in 2011 and 2012. The purpose of the stays is to manage research projects in Palestine and Egypt, and to increase Arabic language skills.
Both trips have coincided with major developments in the Middle East, and in the Palestine/Israel relationship in particular.
The blog will likely be an odd mix of posts on the political situation, life/culture in the Old City and broader East Jerusalem, what it's like to be back in school, etc.
