This open discussion will cover the legacies of British mandate colonialism in Palestine. Both as a colonizing power and as a military, political and cultural sponsor of settler colonial invasion in Palestine, a glimpse into the modalities of power and repression in the mandate era provide a deeper analysis for the long history of Palestinian resistance in all of its forms. This conversation will pay particular attention to the role of education and cultural heritage, integrating the collections and work of the BZU Museum as we explore the various aspects of this long imperial shadow.
