This keynote is part of the Intellectuals and decolonization in Palestine/Israel conference.
“Apartheid as a New Phase of the Continuing Nakba“ with novelist Elias Khoury
An attempt to rethink the concept of the Nakba as a continuous process that began in 1948 and never stopped. What is the new meaning of the Nakba, and how can we read it in the light of its new phase that began with the fall of the Oslo Agreements, as a project to create an apartheid system in all of Palestine, and the dangers of a new massive ethnic cleansing. What does this new phase mean in daily life in Palestine, and what are its reflections on Israeli society?
The virtual talk will be followed by an on-site discussion with philosophers Raif Zreik and Adi Ophir and sociologist Honaida Ghanim.
