About the event: 

AT 11am ET / 6pm Palestine/Lebanon

Palestinians around the world continue to document their own history, identity, and culture through established and newly found institutions. The efforts of such institutions reflect a wider trend of innovative archiving, oral history, reconstruction of maps, and knowledge production, at local, national and global levels.

Speakers from the Institute for Palestine Studies, The Palestinian Museum, and the Palestine Land Studies Center at the American University of Beirut will share the work they do to sustain Palestinian memory and rights, and  link their efforts to those wider global dynamics of Palestinian self-assertion and affirmation.
