The Hundred Years’ War on Palestine
- This event has passed.
Join us for the book launch of The Hundred Years’ War on Palestine with author Rashid Khalidi in conversation with Karma Nabulsi. The historical writing – an analysis of Palestinian resistance to colonisation – exposes the decisions and movements that secured victories as well as the mistakes and miscalculations that contributed to defeats. Beginning in the final days of the Ottoman Empire, Khalidi shows how the nascent nationalism of the Palestinians confronted a project to take over their homeland drawing on his family’s experiences and archives.
Rashid Khalidi is a Palestinian American historian and the Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia University. He is the co-editor of the Journal of Palestine. His previous books include Palestinian Identity, The Iron Cage, and Brokers of Deceit.
Karma Nabulsi is Fellow in Politics at St Edmund Hall, teaches at the University of Oxford, and works on the political philosophy of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 19th century radical republicanism, and the collective rights of the Palestinian people. She is the patron of the London Palestine Film Festival, a patron of the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign. She is also co-founder of the HOPING Foundation, which raises awareness, and sponsors art, music and scholarships for young Palestinian refugees across the Middle East.
