Professor Mazin B. Qumsiyeh will give a lecture on ‘Popular Resistance in Palestine’ on Tuesday 1st March in Nuffield Lecture Theatre A at 18:00.
Professor Qumsiyeh teaches and researches in Bethlehem and Birzeit Universities in occupied Palestine and recently authored the book “Popular Resistance in Palestine: A History of Hope and Empowerment.”
The lecture will focus on the subject matter of the book, which was drawn from hundreds of original sources to provide “the most comprehensive history of civil resistance in Palestine.”
The poster for the talk states that “The Western media paint Palestinian resistance against Israeli occupation as exclusively violent: armed resistance, suicide bombings and rocket attacks. In reality these methods are the exception to what is a peaceful and creative resistance movement.”
The talk is free. For more information contact Dr S. M. Sharkh (firstname.lastname@example.org).
