This chapter examines the personal narratives of Palestinian–Israeli youth using two valuable theoretical concepts. First, it calls upon the idea of hyphenated selves, recently developed by Michelle Fine, Selcuk Sirin, and their colleagues in a pathbreaking study of Muslim–American youth post-9/11. Second, it employs Elli Schachter's (2004, 2005) conception of an identity configuration to examine the narratives of Palestinian–Israeli youth as they negotiate disparate discourses in Israeli society. Both of these theoretical frameworks provide a useful way of making meaning of the life story narratives of Palestinian–Israeli youth—narratives that are uncomfortably positioned within the larger identity politics of Israel and Palestine.

Keywords:   Palestinian–Israeli youth, hyphenated selves, identity configuration, life story narratives
