Biography

Hagar Kotef is a Senior Lecturer in Political Theory and Comparative Politics. Her book Movement and the Ordering of Freedom (Duke University Press, 2015) examines the roles of mobility and immobility in the history of political thought and the structuring of political spaces. Ranging from the writings of Locke, Hobbes, and Mill to the sophisticated technologies of control that circumscribe the lives of Palestinians in the Occupied West Bank, it shows how concepts of freedom, security, and violence take form and find justification via different and differentiated regimes of movement. Currently, she works on the construction of political belonging in settler colonies. Her work was published in various journals, including Political Theory, Antipode, Theory, Culture, and Society, Politics & Gender, and Signs, among others, Before joining SOAS she held positions at the Minerva Humanities Center at Tel Aviv University, the Department of Politics and Government at Ben Gurion University, at Columbia University and the University of CA, Berkeley.
