Hours

24S

Aims at decolonizing the study of Palestine by providing an overview of Palestine’s modern history that is grounded in critical perspectives that challenge dominant scholarly paradigms about Palestine. Provides specific theoretical approaches in the study of Palestinian history, culture and politics through such concepts as settler colonialism, occupation, revolution, nationalism, indigeneity, racial capitalism, imperialism, sovereignty, collective memory, resistance, liberation and transnational solidarity. Engages with memoirs, oral histories, archival documents, films, poetry, music and literature to understand the historical, political-economic and juridical foundations that have produced a century of oppression, violence, resistance and solidarity within, across and beyond Palestine.
