The Institute for Palestine Studies continues to expand its role in promoting and encouraging Palestinian cultural initiatives and activities. In that regard, and in supporting one of its long term strategic partnerships with the Palestinian Museum and Taawon, the Institute would like to draw your attention to the Palestinian Museum's Research Grants announcement.
The Palestinian Museum is an independent institution dedicated to supporting an open and dynamic Palestinian culture nationally and internationally. The Museum presents and engages with new perspectives on Palestinian history, society and culture, while offering spaces for creative ventures, educational programmes and innovative research. Complementing its annual and seasonal exhibitions, the Museum develops and organizes a rich array of educational, research and public programmes in line with its vision and mission of producing and disseminating knowledge about Palestinian history and culture, bolstering links among Palestinians worldwide and amplifying Palestinian narratives in global cultural dialogue.
In fulfilment of its 2019-2023 programme strategy, the Palestinian Museum’s newly-launched Knowledge and Research programme is geared towards fostering civic engagement and reflexion, producing and disseminating knowledge about Palestine, and addressing knowledge gaps in Palestinian history and culture. It aims to achieve this through the development and organisation of local and international events, including exhibition-related conferences, symposia, panel discussions, literary events, workshops, film screenings, tours and two original publications to document the annual discursive and scholarly outputs, as well as conference proceedings and papers.
Accordingly, the Palestinian Museum is pleased to issue an open call for papers through the Museum’s strategic research programme:
- Art History in Palestine From The 19th Century Until Late-20th Century (1990s) And Its Discourses
- The Palestinian Coast: From the late Ottoman Period until the Present
- History of Printing in Jerusalem
- New Perspectives on Contemporary Palestinian Culture
Submission deadline: May 15 2020.
