The latest issue of the Journal of Palestine Studies is now available, with a special cluster of articles examining what Queer theory and activism can tell us about Palestine: “As a method of inquiry, queer theory enriches critical understandings of power and sexuality by questioning hegemonic discourses of salvation, solution, or settlement.”
In our latest newsletter, Inside Palestine Studies, we focus on Jerusalem and the details reported about the Trump "peace plan." As Rashid Khalidi notes, amid these extraordinary times, "the ability of the Palestinians to resist will again be sorely tested in the absence of decisive and unified leadership, at a time when the broader Arab world is riven by division, weakened by the absence of democracy, and undermined by the increasingly favorable disposition to Israel of many of its absolute rulers."
Last month Palestinians marked the 70th anniversary of the Nakba by exploring the historical foundations of the events that transpired in 1948 when nearly 750,000 Palestinians were driven from their homes and never allowed to return. Far from a singular historical event that ended with the establishment of the State of Israel, the Nakba is part of a deliberate process of dispossession and displacement that continues today as Palestinians mark 51 years of occupation since the 1967 War, known as the Naksa.
The Institute for Palestine Studies (IPS) is honored to announce that two of its longtime scholars, Rashid Khalidi and Salim Tamari, have recently received awards from the World Congress for Middle Eastern Studies (WOCMES) and the State of Palestine, respectively.
This Special Focus highlights a series of articles from our Journal of Palestine Studies archive on the Palestinians in Israel whom are increasingly central to the Palestinian struggle for self-determination, unity, and national dignity.
