Online Event

Dr. Desai joins us for a talk that focuses on the challenges and contradictions of preserving Palestine, from occupied Palestine to campuses in Canada.

The talk will examine the systematic attempts at dislocating, displacing, and erasing Palestinian archives, by the Israeli state and other actors that have contributed to curricular erasures. The talk will also speak to the epistemic challenges of studying Palestine from "the undercommons”, a space of epistemic resistance to settler colonial erasure.
