Personal profile

Biographical details

Ivana Bevilacqua is a researcher and graduate teaching assistant at King's College University London. Her research and writing are rooted within critical race, settler colonial and indigenous studies and cross the fields of geography, anthropology, and politics. In her LAHP-funded doctoral research Ivana combines archival research with ethnography and participatory methods to investigate the entanglement between the coloniality of infrastructure and the materiality of Zionist logics. In particular, she investigates the role of roadscapes in cementing the spatial politics of Judaization in Palestine/Israel and the ways in which struggles over infrastructural development plans have enhanced forms of indigenous sovereignty beyond the colonial recognition of rights to the land.

Ivana also works with a team of researchers on an exploratory and collaborative arts-based research project called Imaging Social Justice as part of the Visual Embodied Methodologies Network, based within the Faculty of Social Sciences & Public Policy (KCL), which partners with the Arts Cabinet in experimenting with different forms of artistic knowledge production. Ivana received a grant to develop her project Puzzling: The Sensory Politics of Infrastructure. Her contribution, characterised by a multi-sensory approach, combines academic investigation with participatory photography and filmmaking to monitor and anticipate infrastructural projects in the Triangle Area (Northern Israel/Palestine). Alongside the Arab Centre for Alternative Planning and the Popular Committee of Wadi Ara, she has developed a counter-cartographical repository that seeks to predict, and prevent, the displacement of local Palestinian communities affected by national development plans.
