Description:

This talk examines the ways U.S. civil rights and antiwar struggles, Israeli military and administrative occupation, and Palestinian narratives of dispossession, dispersion, and resistance were forged, felt, and thought together. As became increasingly evident, the dialectic of occupation (June ’67) and liberation (Global ’68) animated a slew of incisive cultural production, from novels and poetry to pamphlets to posters.

Keith P. Feldman is currently an assistant professor of Comparative Ethnic Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. He is the author of "A Shadow over Palestine: The Imperial Life of Race in America" (Minnesota 2015), and the co-editor of a forthcoming issue of "Social Text" on race, religion, and war.

Co-sponsored by the Dept. of African American Studies and the Program in American Studies.

Lunch provided.
