Watch on Watson's YouTube Channel.
Are recent events yet another cycle of age-old ethnic and religious conflict over Jerusalem, or are we witnessing a third intifada by Palestinians against decades of systematic dispossession and displacement following the nakba of 1948? And how is the Palestinian condition relevant to global justice struggles against settler colonialism and racism?
The teach-in is organized by the Center for Middle East Studies and the New Directions in Palestinian Studies Initiative at Brown University; co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America, the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice, the Pembroke Center for Teaching and Research on Women, the Departments of Africana Studies, American Studies, History, and Religious Studies.
