Palestinian Women, History and Memory
Five online meetings | February 21 - March 21, 2021 | Sundays 20:00-21:30 (GMT-2)
At: 2021

Following the high demand, Zochrot opens a third cohort of the course “Palestinian Women, History and Memory” to mark International Women's Day.

We cannot understand the full scale of the Nabka’s socio-economic 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 five prominent Palestinian researchers - Dr. Manar Hasan, Dr. Fatma Kassem, Dr. Areen Hawari, Dr. Himmat Zoubi, Dr. Raghda Alnabilsy - and will address a range of issues, including Palestinian women’s movements from the British Mandate period to the present and the impact of colonialist realities on their development and vision; oral history and its centrality to the writing of feminine history; the city and Palestinian women; nationality,
citizenship and gender and more.

The course will be held online in Hebrew
Recommended cost: 100 NIS
