In Your Eyes a Sandstorm: ways of being a Palestinian
Book Launch and Talk by Author Arthur Neslen
Arthur Neslen reaches beyond journalistic clichés to let a wide variety of Palestinians answer the question for themselves. Beginning in the present with Bisan and Abud, two traumatized children from Jenin's refugee camp, the book's narrative arcs backwards through the generations to come full circle with two elderly refugees from villages that the children were named after. Along the way, Neslen recounts a history of land, resistance, dispossession, exile and trauma.
Introduced by Professor Gilbert Achcar, SOAS.
