The European Centre for Palestine Studies and the Institute for Arab and Islamic Studies at University of Exeter are organising a conference for 3-4 April 2023 with the title “Transnational Solidarity amongst (Settler) Colonised Peoples: Palestine and beyond”.
The panels will cover different experiences of colonisation and resistance in the context of transnational solidarities. We encourage the submission of abstracts on topics related, but not limited to, the following:
- Building transnational connectivity,
- Liberated futures and decolonial solutions for settler colonial realities,
- Liberation beyond geopolitics,
- Community psychology across and in-between contexts,
- Impact of transnational solidarity/ resistance,
- The limitations and challenges of transnational solidarity,
- The role of technology in building global solidarity,
- Liberatory publics and literatures,
- Decoloniality and transnational praxis.
We accept scholarly research papers, individuals or co-authored. We also encourage alternative and artistic contributions that present different mediums of research and knowledge production. Those can take the form of poetry, artistic performances, exhibitions, culinary experiences, journalism and many more.
There are a limited number of accommodation grants available for presenters, grant applications for which will open once decisions on abstracts have been sent out. The conference will also be held in a hybrid format allowing people to attend worldwide and for participants who are unable to attend in-person.
