Palestine beyond National Frames: Emerging Politics, Cultures, and Claims
Journal Issue Pages: 240 Volume 117, Number 1 Published: January 2018 An issue of South Atlantic Quarterly
Special Issue Editor(s): Sophie Richter-Devroe, Ruba Salih
The “national” has functioned as the affective and symbolic frame for the political project of liberation for Palestinians and has also been the underlying grid of most of the scholarly work on Palestine. This issue goes beyond national frames to disclose a different dimension of the Palestinian politics of liberation. It sheds light on an indigenous population engaged in ongoing and everyday collective resistance to protect their “home” and defend their “land”—as these are constantly reconfigured and imagined across place and time—rather than a memorialized homeland or national territory.
