Dr. Yuval Karplus
I have obtained a PhD in Geography from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in 2009, and currently employed as a Post Doctoral Fellow in the Department. I worked as a teaching and research assistant and more recently as a lecturer at BGU. My teaching experience includes undergraduate introductory course on geographical, social and political issues concerning Indigenous Peoples. I am a member of the IGA, IUAES and IAG and had lectured extensively in local and international conferences and workshops. My present research activities involve Indigenous Peoples Spatialities, Human Rights and the Archaeology of Settler's Geography. I was part of a design team of a model sustainable Bedouin desert community (project Wadi Attir), and for the past several years am working with a group of University faculty on establishing a special education and rehabilitation campus for Bedouin children with special needs.
