“Hearing Palestine” is a new initiative at the University of Toronto that provides a safe space for Palestinians and those interested in the history & future of Palestine to share their experience and research. The initiative is designed to improve the university experience for students enduring, and concerned about, anti-Palestinian discrimination on campus. We encourage dialogues on cultural life, artistic creativity, social justice and current affairs in Canada and the Middle East from the perspective of Palestine. We are in solidarity with indigenous struggles everywhere and encourage critical engagement with settler colonialism, sectarianism and authoritarianism in the Middle East, Canada and elsewhere.
Diana Buttu will be speaking about her undergraduate and Law School experience at University of Toronto and her subsequent life as a prominent Palestinian lawyer and journalist.
