Where is the political in cultural studies? in Palestine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


By drawing on scholarship that focuses on cinema and music, the author argues that the very act of 'creating culture' in the contemporary Palestinian period is a form of political resistance. Second, given political conditions of countering Zionist/Israeli erasures, the study of Palestinian culture is also a form of political resistance. The author argues that the resistance at the heart of the two 'analytics' of culture and cultural studies is imperative.
