An Interdisciplinary Symposium, Friday 2nd October 2009
Nottingham Trent University, UK
Keynote address by Professor Nur Masalha,
Director of the Centre for Religion, History and Holy Land Studies, St Mary's, Surrey
As a site of complex and enduring conflict, Palestine – conceived as a cultural entity – poses many challenges to those who wish to engage in the task of its meaningful representation. Nevertheless, a desire to confront these challenges continues to flourish – among political thinkers, activists, scholars, creative practitioners, writers and critics both within and beyond the Palestinian territories.
