Roundtable: Harold Wolpe’s Intellectual Agenda and Writing on Palestine

Introduction (by Max Ajl) In a well-known programmatic note on the relationship of theoretical work to politics, Harold Wolpe, a South African sociologist, anti-apartheid activist, briefly political prisoner, then exile, rejected two opposing positions on intellectual labor. The first was the assertion of complete autonomy, in the sense that research ought to simply emerge organically from the will and whims of the intellectual. The second was a stance of simple justification for the party line. Instead of those two opposing positions, he opted for a sort of accountable independence: “In this sense, the priorities defined at the political level became also the ...

آخر أيّام المدينة - الجزء الاول

[المصدر موقع المواطن]

"آخر أيّام المدينة" أو "الحضارة في آخر أيامها" كما قال "آخر الرجال المحترمين" بدأ حضور "المدينة" في السينما المصريّة يأخذ شكلًا مميزًا خلال السبعينيات كنتيجة للفترة الساداتيّة التي وُعدت ووعَدت بـ"الانفتاح" كثمن للتطبيع مع دولة الاحتلال الإسرائيلي، ومن بعدها الفترة المباركيّة على نفس النهج، مع التركيز على سياسات الدولة القُطريّة والخصخصة. فكان هذا التناول الفني ظاهرة مصاحبة للتحوّلات السياسية والاجتماعية والاقتصادية والثقافية والدينية في مصر. لعّل من أبرز تلك الأفلام التي دمجت كل أبعاد تلك الفترة –والقائمة تطول- كان فيلم "البريء" (1986) من إخراج عاطف الطيب (1947 – 1995)، بطولة الراحل –الحاضر- أحمد زكي ...

The Politics of the Public Sphere and Navigating State Interactions: The Case of al-Midan Theatre

The history of Israel and the country’s founding lends itself to a complicated understanding of the public sphere. In 1948, Zionist forces expelled upwards of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes; however, fifteen percent of the Palestinians who lived on the land that would subsequently become the State of Israel remained.[1] This segment of the Palestinian population, or ’48 Palestinians, were often forced into neighboring majority Arab villages or corralled into certain neighborhoods in “mixed cities” such as Haifa and Jaffa, which also brings into debate how truly “mixed” such cities are. In consequence, there are now several different public spheres within ...

Tauris and Center for Palestine Studies, London Middle East Institute, 2016.  Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this book? Toufic Haddad (TH): I wrote this book because I wanted to research the profound transformations Western donor aid was having on Palestinian political and economic life across the 1967 Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) since the signing of the 1993 Oslo peace accords between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). Western donors have been central actors in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but their role is too ...

The Fattoush Book Exhibition in Haifa

The Fattoush Book Exhibition, which ran from April 3-8, was more than a simple book fair where city residents and visitors could come to buy the latest Arabic language publications. Organizers of the festival turned it into a space of collaboration between publishing companies across the Arab world, from Dar al-Ahlia in Oman to Dar al-Jamal of Beirut. Gathering publications from these various publishing houses, Fattoush brought over 1,000 Arabic texts to Haifa, many of which have never been available inside the Green Line. At night, different speakers brought the texts to life. Poets and storytellers closed out two nights of the festival, reading passages from their own ...

Statement of Opposition to the "Israel Anti-Boycott Act" by the Middle East Studies Association of North America

[The following statement was issued by the Middle East Studies Association of North America on 27 July 2017 in response to the Congressional move to enact a "Israel Anti-Boycott Act" law.] The Middle East Studies Association of North America (MESA) expresses its strong opposition to the “Israel Anti-Boycott Act” (S. 720 and H.R. 1697), currently under consideration by Congress.

Visualizing Palestine: Justice Denied

For victims and survivors of the 2014 assault on Gaza, Israel’s own military courts are the only place to seek legal recourse. These courts do not offer a genuine avenue for justice to Palestinians.  Of the 500 Palestinian complaints which were filed with Israeli military courts in relation to the 2014 Gaza war, 196 were dismissed immediately, 133 were lost in the system, and only 31 were brought forward for criminal investigation. Three soldiers were eventually convicted for minor felonies such ...

Visualizing Palestine: Residency Revocation

Since 1967, Israel has revoked the residency status of more than 14,500 Palestinians from Jerusalem. Revocation of residency leads to forcible transfer, a war crime under the Rome Statue of the International Criminal Court and a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention.  After Israel’s illegal annexation of East Jerusalem, Israel created the status of permanent resident for Palestinians living in the city, making entry into and residency in Jerusalem a revocable privilege instead of an inherent ...

Visualizing Palestine: 50+ Years of Occupation

5 June 2017 marked 50 years of Israel’s occupation, a sobering milestone. The word "occupation" is typically used to describe Israel’s ongoing military rule over the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem since 1967, but the story of Israeli colonialism and occupation is much broader. In its short history, the state of Israel has not only occupied Palestinian land, but also the sovereign territory of three of its four neighboring countries. Today, Israel continues to occupy land in ...
