CMES-seminarium: Kan Algeriets historia lära oss något om Israel-Palestina idag?
Presentation (på engelska) av Arthur Asseraf (University of Cambridge) om Algeriets historia och Israel-Palestina. Seminariet hålls på CMES (Finngatan 16) och på Zoom.
OBS! Detta seminarium hålls på engelska.
As people try to make sense of the current violence in Palestine and Israel, comparisons to Algeria keep popping up. Whether it is heated debates about references to Frantz Fanon’s writings, or fears of the mass exodus of settlers that took place in 1962, what can we make of these analogies? This talk looks back to the Algerian War of Independence and its aftermath to think through possible futures. It will show how the history of both places has long been entangled, and how connections between the two have at times opened up creative possibilities and at other times shut them down.
Arthur Asseraf is Associate Professor in History at the University of Cambridge, and a Pro Futura Scientia Fellow at SCAS in Uppsala. He is the author of Electric News in Colonial Algeria (winner of the 2020 Middle East Studies Book Prize), Le désinformateur and a coordinator of Colonisations: notre histoire. His research focuses on the history of colonialism, media, and race in the Maghrib and Mediterranean.
The talk is held at CMES, Finngatan 16 in Lund. If you are not able to attend in-person, there is an option to attend via Zoom. Please register here for Zoom attendance: https://lu-se.zoom.us/meeting/register/u5Aod-mtqj4uG9BP1GyeNOdP4vYL8J2T…
