Taking as a starting point the recent May 2021 Palestinian general strike, the first since 1936, this panel will examine the struggle to defragment Palestinian experiences as in itself a form of decolonial practice of resistance and reimagining Palestinian spaces, identities, belongings, and histories outside a Jewish-centric fragmentary politics.

Speakers: Rana Barakat, Assistant Professor, History and Contemporary Arab studies at Birzeit University in Palestine Amahl Bishara, Associate Professor, Department Chair at Tufts University, Dept. of Anthropology Rami Younis, Independent Journalist (Moderated by Hilary Rantisi)
