In Seeking Palestine, a volume of new writing, 15 innovative and outstanding Palestinian writers respond with their reflections, experiences, reflections and polemics on exile and home.

Product Description

 

How do Palestinians live, imagine and reflect on home and exile in this period of a stateless and transitory Palestine, a deeply contested and crisis-ridden national project, and a sharp escalation in Israeli state violence and Palestinian oppression? How can exile and home be written?

 

Penny Johnson is an independent researcher who works closely with the Institute of Women’s Studies at Birzeit University, where she edits the Review of Women’s Studies. Recent writing and research on Palestine has focused on weddings and wars, wives of political prisoners, and young Palestinians’ views about proper and improper marriages. She is also an Associate Editor of the Jerusalem Quarterly.

 

Raja Shehadeh is a Palestinian lawyer and writer who lives in Ramallah. He is the founder of the pioneering non-partisan human rights organisation, Al Haq, an affiliate of the International Commission of Jurists, and the author of several books about international law, human rights and the Middle East. He is also the author of the widely-acclaimed Palestinian Walks, and most recently, A Rift in Time: Travels with My Ottoman Uncle.

 

Raja Shehadeh has also written the introduction to From India to Palestine: Essays in Solidarity.
