Dr. Nimrod Luz

Nimrod Luz is Associate Professor for Sociology and Anthropology. From August 2013 to November 2013 he was research fellow at the Berliner Antike-Kolleg with the project “Texts, Landscapes and Imagining the sacred Constructing Narratives of Jerusalem”. Main focus of his research at the Berliner Antike Kolleg was to retrace the way how Jerusalem as a city with great impact on religion and culture was constructed in the narratives of prominent Palestinian public figures. By conflating interviews with over 30 local leaders with texts and landscapes of the city he analyzed how they narrate the city, its past and present, and particularly its sacred role in the current national struggle.
