Palestine: A Political Travelogue

Toronto — 7 October 2015.


View on YouTube website

Palestine has long been central to colonial and anti-colonial imaginaries – of the Ottoman and British empires, and Zionist and Arab nationalisms, before becoming a key site of inspiration for left and anti-colonial internationalism and recent scholarship on decolonial resistance. The International Conference of Critical Geography in Ramallah, Palestine, in July 2015, extended this trajectory of anti-colonial internationalism by enriching our historical and political understandings of Palestine – especially by way of tours of the West Bank and conversations with Palestinian academics and activists. The panelists of this event will reflect on their experiences of this international conference and what it suggests for global left solidarity and decolonial activism.

Introduction and moderated by Norma Rantisi (Concordia University). Panelists:

This event was supported by the Socialist Project and the Department of Geography and Planning at the University of Toronto.
