This teach-in, organised by the Social Theory Centre and co-hosted by CSWG, aims to deepen understanding of what is happening in Palestine by placing events in a longer historical context.
Israel's 11-day bombardment of the Gaza strip in May once again brought public attention to the most visible forms of oppression and violence to which Palestinians are subjected. The aim of this teach-in is to deepen understanding of what is happening in Palestine by placing events in a longer historical context of settler-colonialism, dispossession, resistance and mobilisation.
The speakers will also critically assess the ways in which Palestine has been framed in Western academia, highlighting the need for a decolonial and emancipatory engagement with Palestine as a global struggle for justice and liberation.
