Upcoming Events

Teaching Palestine in the Present (Event Postponed)

Join us for this event organsied by the BRISMES Outreach & Pedagogy Subcommittee. Who writes Palestinian history, in the present, and down to the present? How is it written and practiced, in and outside Europe, and what for? We will aim to open up a wide-ranging discussion of how the ‘integral politics’ of Palestinian history are playing out amid contested forms of hegemony in the present, while considering how those in Middle East Studies can best intervene.

Date: TBC
