Home Work: Inside the Lives of Migrant Caregivers in Palestine/Israel

Home Work: Inside the Lives of Migrant Caregivers in Palestine/Israel

Hundreds of thousands of migrant workers are employed as caregivers in Palestine/Israel, nurturing the bodies of elderly and disabled Jewish-Israelis and sustaining the body politic of the State of Israel. Recruited from South and Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe, these women sacrifice personal freedoms — and take on large debts — for the opportunity to earn a better living. Through ethnographic interviews with migrant caregivers and their employers, Faculty Fellow Rachel Brown, assistant professor of women, gender and sexuality studies, focuses on this often-overlooked population in her book project, “Four Years, Three Months: Migrant Caregivers in Palestine/Israel.”
