Shifting Spaces and Lack of Spaces: Impoverished Bedouin Women's Experience of Cultural Transition through Arts-Based Research Academic Article uri icon


  • This articles discusses the pictures by marginalized Bedouin women moving from nomadic villages to townships. The women's experiences of these shifting inside and outside spaces they live within and the lack of spaces, both inside and outside, both sedentary and mobile, are presented and understood in terms of the interacting oppressions they experience. The use of an arts-based methodology gives access to these spatial experiences, and is discussed in terms of its relevance as an indigenous research method that forms a base for “hearing” the women's concerns according to their own categories, so as to adjust policy in the light of these concerns.
