From the "Undercommons": The Challenges and Contradictions of Preserving Palestine

When and Where

Thursday, November 25, 2021 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm
via Zoom


Dr. Chandni Desai, Assistant Professor, Centre for Critical Studies of Equity and Solidarity


Dr. Chandni Desai joins us for a talk that focuses on the challenges and contradictions of preserving Palestine, from occupied Palestine to campuses in Canada.

The talk will examine the systematic attempts at dislocating, displacing, and erasing Palestinian archives, by the Israeli state and other actors that have contributed to curricular erasures. Dr. Desai will also speak to the epistemic challenges of studying Palestine from "the undercommons", a space of epistemic resistance to settler colonial erasure.
