Noura Erakat

Gaza: Settler-colonialism and war

Sydney, NSW

A discussion around the conflict along the Gaza Strip. Join human rights attorney Noura Erakat to explore the nature of post-nationalism in the Palestinian struggle for freedom.

During the height of the 1960s and 1970s anti-colonial movement, the Palestinian struggle was central to a broader struggle to overturn colonialism as a legitimate form of governance. Nearly every formerly colonized peoples have since achieved their national independence.

This talk seeks to explore how we can understand the Palestinian struggle for freedom in this post-nationalist moment by drawing on other freedom struggles and analytical frameworks. It claims that though Palestinians have failed to establish a state, they now have the potential to pave alternative futures for themselves and the world in which freedom is realized in excess of sovereignty.
