Welcome to The Experimental Humanities Collaborative Network

Our Palestine / فلسطيننا Symposium

March 17, 2022 - March 31, 2022

In commemoration of Land Day, the Division of Humanities and Practicing Arts at Al-Quds Bard College (AQB), with support from the Experimental Humanities Collaborative Network (EHCN), hosted events across the month of March that honored the many shapes and forms in which Palestinians have sustained a powerful counternarrative over and against the zionist narrative. The events explored how Palestinian experiences and histories have been communicated through creative practices as diverse as oral storytelling, fine arts, photography, digital media, social media, citizen journalism, filmmaking and literature. The symposium takes place in the context of ongoing colonial violence in Sheikh Jarrah and throughout Palestine, past and present. The symposium builds on the momentum of the Palestinians’ determination to narrate their own lives and experiences across platforms and fields despite ongoing attempts at silencing. This event was part of EHCN’s Reclaiming the Narrative series.
