كلنا من خلائقه

قبل محمود درويش لم يكن هناك ما يمكن أن يدعى جديا بالأدب فلسطيني. كانت هناك محاولات. لكنها لم تبلغ حد تشكيل هوية لذاتها. كان هناك إبراهيم طوقان وعبد الرحيم محمود وأبو سلمى، كما كان هناك السكاكيني ووديع البستاني، واضع أساس الشعر الوطني في فلسطين. وكان غير هؤلاء أيضا. لكن يمكن القول أنهم كانوا جميعا مجرد بدايات لمن سيأتي ...  Read More »

إسرائيل الثقافة

  كتب فيليب روث، في "شكوى بورتنوي"، إن إسرائيل منفى اليهود. وبمقارنةٍ لا تستقيم هنا (لعل مردّها هو التكرار الغريب لمقولات تلحّ على تخوين الأكراد ووصمهم بالانفصالية وتشبيه أحلامهم في دولة مستقلة بأحلام الإسرائيليين بأرض الميعاد، والربط الملغوم بين الموساد وكردستان) رأى صديق أن كردستان العراق قد تكون ...  Read More »

Introduction: Remembering Barbara Harlow

In the opening pages of her 1996 book After Lives: Legacies of Revolutionary Writing, a book that focuses on Ghassan Kanafani, Roque Dalton, and Ruth First—all of them revolutionary writers, all of them assassinated—Barbara Harlow notes that all three of these writers were also “committed critics…at a time and ...  Read More »

Barbara Harlow: The Formative Egyptian Period

In her late twenties, she arrived in Egypt of the late 1970s looking like a teenager who lost her way and ended up in teeming Cairo. Doris Shoukri, then chair of the department of English and Comparative Literature (ECLT) at the American University in Cairo (AUC), had interviewed her in Berlin in 1977 for her first ...  Read More »

Generations of Resistance

Barbara would understand that the task of remembering her is harder without a cat curled on my lap, perched on the desk, or emanating a spirit of companionship from somewhere in the house. "Scratches to the cats" was Barbara's sign-off to me on email exchanges. When she said no—shockingly, if rightly—to my ...  Read More »

The Occupation of Literature and Books That Are Difficult to Get

When I was one of Barbara Harlow’s beginning PhD students in Ethnic and Third World Literatures at the University of Texas at Austin, I had the temerity one day to ask her in her office how she justified sitting behind a desk, reading and writing, when she was so acutely aware of all the terrible things going on in ...  Read More »

فاكهة السُّوْر

صُبْحَ كَشَفْتِ لنا، صرنا ليلاً. ولولا لَيْلُكِ، ما كنّا أهلاً للصباح. أدَبُ السالكِ إليكِ ألّا يَجِدَ. ما تابَ من اطمأنَّ، ولا اهتدى الواصل. حَمَّلْتِ القاطفَ لهفةً إلى ما لم يَرَ. ولو عادَ، لَشَغَلَتْه فاكهةُ السُّوْرِ عن خزائن الأعماق. اسمُكِ يُرقى إليه سهَراً، يوصَد على سِرّه بالحسرة، يقشَّر رنينُه بطرفَي ...  Read More »

Israel, Palestine, and the Poetics of Genocide

“Genocide” evokes crematoria, mountains of skulls, and mass graves. It is what the Nazis did to the Jews of Europe, what the Khmer Rouge did to fellow Cambodians, what Hutu nationalists did to Tutsis in Rwanda. The term, like the practices of death and social destruction to which it refers, is odious. Charging ...  Read More »

Jerusalem: A City for All?

The legal, bureaucratic, and physical manifestations of racism are often just complex enough to seem invisible or accidental (at least to those not directly affected). The 2020 municipal plan for Jerusalem pulled back the curtain a little when it explicitly set out a "demographic target of 60% Jews and 40% ...  Read More »

About the Palestine Page

Since its launch in 2010, Jadaliyya has published many incisive pieces on Palestine and Palestinians across a broad disciplinary spectrum. Originally, those works were featured on the Law and Conflict page (previously known as the Occupation, Intervention, Law [O.I.L.] page), but the centrality of Palestine required that it have its own place to feature content and debate upon many of the issues regarding it. This change allows Palestine to command the distinctive attention that it deserves, and the concentration of articles and other materials on this new page will make it easier for our readers to find what they are looking for when they go to the Jadaliyya home page. Welcome to the Palestine Page!
