Palestine and Decolonial Movements

This lecture will delve into the exploration of the Palestinian struggle from a decolonial lens in light of the most recent escalation of settler-colonial violence and ethnic cleansing. It seeks to re-locate and centralize decolonialism beyond its academic and activist confines to be more accurately reflective of the Palestinian context. In this way, the lecture seeks to dis-locate the narrative of conflict and conflict resolution to colonialism and decolonial movements.
