The Existence Of Palestinian Collectivity
The SWANA Collective is excited to present its annual full month of programming in commemoration of International Women's Day and Women's History Month. Our kick-off to International Women's Day will start with a recording of keynote address made for the Palestinian American Women's Association of Southern California 28th Annual International Women's Day Banquet held in Anaheim, CA on March 10, 2012. The keynote address to the event presented by Dr. Samera Esmeir, L.L.M, PhD. who is Assistant Professor of Rhetoric at UC Berkeley. In her talk, Dr. Esmeir discusses the lawful status of Palestinians living both on their homeland and as refugees, the Israeli colonial project of continued and purposeful fragmentation of Palestinians and how the State Project solution is limited in many important ways. Finally, Dr. Esmeir suggests taking a deeper approach to a "state solution" by the inclusion of all Palestinian refugees and presents examples of successful strategies of Palestinian Collectivism to this end.
Dr. Samera Esmeir with L.L.M, PhD is Assistant Professor of Rhetoric at UC Berkeley. Her current research explores the relationship between law and colonialism. She is co-editor and co-founder of Al-Adalah's Review.
