“Palestine: Colonialism as Peace”

Wednesday, April 28th at 7:45pm

Room 417, Altschul auditorium, International Affairs Building, Columbia University
420 West 118th Street, NY, NY 10027

“One of the most difficult things to grasp in the modern history of Palestine and the Palestinians is the meaning of the Nakba. Is the Nakba to be seen as a discrete event that took place and ended in 1948, or is it something else? What are the political stakes in reifying the Nakba as a past event, in commemorating it annually, in bowing before its awesome symbolism? What are the effects of making the Nakba a finite historical episode that one bemoans but must ultimately accept as a fact of history?”  -Joseph Massad

We hope that you can join us for this informative and important event to commemorate the Nakba and the ongoing catastrophe of the Palestinian people.
