We cannot understand the full scale of the Nabka’s socioeconomic and political history without reference to the key element of women’s lived experience. Conversely, we cannot understand gender relations and roles without reference to political developments within the broader colonialist context.
In recent years, a range of scholarly studies, films and artworks have examined the Nakba from the gender perspective, and the impact of the Zionist colonization of Palestine on the socioeconomic and political status of Palestinian women.
The course will host several researchers and artists and will address a range of issues, including oral history and its centrality to the writing of feminine history; Palestinian women’s movements from the British Mandate period to the present and the impact of colonialist realities on their development and vision; the city and Palestinian women; nationality, citizenship and gender; women and cinema; and women in the pre-statehood rural economy.
