Nakba Day: A Conversation with Rashid Khalidi and Noura Erakat
Thu May 14 2020 @ 4:0
Join the SIPA Palestine Working Group, SIPA MENA Forum and the Center for Palestine Studies to hear human rights attorney and Assistant Professor Noura Erakat in conversation with Professor Rashid Khalidi. Erakat and Khalidi will discuss Khalidi's recent book, "The Hundred Years' War on Palestine: A History of Settler Colonialism and Resistance, 1917–2017." As Friday, May 15, is the 72nd anniversary of the Nakba and because Khalidi's book offers important context to the event, this conversation will offer a chance for reflections on the Nakba.
A moderated Q&A will follow the discussion.
