Alwan for the Arts Presents

The Persistence of the Palestinian Question: Essays on Zionism and the Palestinians

Book Reading and Signing with Professor Joseph Massad

Thursday, October 5, 2006, 6:30 PM Open and free to the public

In this erudite and groundbreaking series of essays, renowned author Joseph Massad asks and answers key questions, such as What has been the main achievement of the Zionist movement? What accounts for the failure of the Palestinian National Movement to win its struggle against Israel? What do anti-Semitism, colonialism and racism have to do with the Palestinian/ Israeli 'conflict'? Joseph Massad offers a radical departure from mainstream analysis in order to expose the causes for the persistence of the 'Palestinian Question'. He proposes that it is not in de-linking the Palestinian Question from the Jewish Question that a resolution can be found, but by linking them as one and the same question. All other proposed solutions, the author argues, are bound to fail.

Joseph Massad is associate professor of modern Arab Politics and intellectual history at Columbia University. He is the author of Colonial Effects: the making of National Identity in Jordan (2001) and Desiring Arabs (forthcoming from the University of Chicago Press).
