London Palestine Film Festival
The London Palestine Film Festival aims to create a stimulating platform that brings together filmmakers, scholars and the public in order to encourage crucial dialogue regarding Palestine's film industry, its culture and its politics. This year's programme offers cinema screenings at the Barbican, as well as online streams (available across the UK) of a selection of the latest works exploring Palestine. From feature dramas to documentaries, there's a film for everyone. #LPFF2020
Mapping Kurdistan: Territory, Self-Determination and Nationalism (Webinar)
16/11/2020 1:00pm
LSE Middle East Centre
This event, as part of the Middle East Centre's Kurdish Studies Series, will be a discussion around Zeynep Kaya's latest book Mapping Kurdistan: Territory, Self-Determination and Nationalism. Addressing the lack of rigorous research and analysis of Kurdish politics from an international perspective, the book considers self-determination, territorial identity and international norms to suggest how these imaginations of homelands have been socially, politically and historically constructed.

In doing so, this exhibition sweeps away ideas based on racist theories and hopes to contribute to both awareness of African identity and pride of African Heritage.
