Dr. Sohn is founder of a new blog, entitled, The Arena: People and Politics. It includes monthly contributions from herself, and it welcomes contributions from scholars, professionals, and lay people regarding micro-level, grassroots, local, and local-national intersections in politics. Blog pieces should be 500-2000 words, preferable. They should be grounded in concrete events or phenomena from specific places, or the intersection of theory and such case materials. See page for more information.

My monograph on Israeli courts and social movements in the religious-secular conflict there is a nuanced case study of Israeli political culture(s) — in tandem and in conflict — around the roles of courts, women, and religion, respectively, within Israeli society and state. It is based upon over two years of research in the field, including in-depth interviews, archival research, and political-ethnographic observation. I received national grants from research institutions in the U.S. to do this research (the National Science Foundation, and the Social Science Research Council — see Academic Background tab); as well as affiliations at Israeli universities (Hebrew University, Department of Political Science, and Tel Aviv University, Department of Anthropology and Sociology). I was allowed access to two Israeli university law libraries, and permission for limited access to several national archives, including the Israeli High Court of Justice archive; the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics (Tel Aviv office); the Knesset Archives, and others. Most research was conducted in Hebrew, a lesser amount in English, and a small amount in French (e.g., interviews with Palestinian-Israeli women).
