Against Acts of Elimination: Making Palestinian Resistance Culture from the Frontiers

by Chandni Desai, University of Toronto

Chandni Desai is Assistant Professor in the Critical Studies of Equity and Solidarity (New College) and Women and Gender Studies at the University of Toronto. Her current research focuses on the Palestinian revolution's cultural resistance, comparative settler colonialism, third world internationalism and global histories of liberation.

She will be speaking about the cultural politics of Palestinian revolutionaries and the ways they historically resisted the settler colonial 'memoricide' of Palestine.
