Gender order is one domain in which claims to power are demarcated in
societies based on a religious codex as well as in secular societies such
as nation-states. Gender order especially becomes the area in which
conflicts are carried out when a society experiences transition or clashes
with another society. At a time when Israel and Palestine face an
escalation of their conflict and Germany is undergoing profound changes,
renowned scholars discuss the implications on the gender order from their
individual vantage points. The transdisciplinary articles focus on Gender
in the context of Knowledge, Arts and Representation, Memory and
Scripture, Political Transition, and Life Sciences.

Dr Ulrike Auga, Cultural Studies scholar and theologian, has lived and
worked in Jerusalem for several years and now teaches at Humboldt
University Berlin.
Prof Dr Christina von Braun is the head of the Chair for Cultural History
and Gender at Humboldt University Berlin and has published widely on
Gender, Media theory and Religious history.
