The Palestine Seminar

GSF 648S

The seminar explores new directions in Palestinian studies from multiple disciplines. It foregrounds the work of scholars and creatives (writers, filmmakers, artists) from Palestine and its diaspora. The seminar is historically and theoretically-oriented using a transnational feminist lens and includes substantial gender and sexuality content. Seminar participants will read (or watch) assigned books, articles, chapters, films, and other material and discuss them with the author or an artist, typically by Zoom. A one-day hybrid conference on sexualities is associated with the seminar.
