Timothy Seidel works at the intersections of peace and conflict studies, politics, and Christian theology. He has worked in various development and peacebuilding contexts in North America and the Middle East, including serving for several years with Mennonite Central Committee. His current research draws from discourse and postcolonial theory to look at peacebuilding and nonviolent resistance in Palestine. He is interested in interpretivist research methods that include discourse, narrative, and ethnographic approaches. Seidel was a contributing author to Under Vine and Fig Tree: Biblical Theologies of Land and the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict (Cascadia Press, 2007), Conflict Transformation and Restorative Justice Manual: Foundations and Skills for Mediation and Facilitation (Mennonite Central Committee, 2009), andNonviolent Resistance and the Second Intifada: Activism and Advocacy (Palgrave, 2011). He is a member of Community Mennonite Church in Lancaster, PA.
