MENA welcomes Dr. Nour Joudah (University of California, Los Angeles) to speak in the Palestine 101 event series. 

In the last several months, we have understandably been focused on death, destruction, and loss. However, the Palestinian experience and landscape is characterized by much more than loss. At its core, the Palestinian story is one that continuously redefines survival across borders and generations. This talk will discuss the ongoing Nakba across historic Palestine and the many dispossessions that has entailed for the last 75 years. It will do so through the lens of sumoud (steadfastness) at every stage of those losses.
