Palestine: “Women and Children” and the Politics of Appeal

For nearly twenty years the Will Miller Social Justice Lecture Series has worked with the University of Vermont to bring writers, activists, and public intellectuals to Burlington, Vermont to lead timely, politically engaged conversations. In a chilling move that echoes similar decisions by right-wing Republican governors across the country, the UVM administration has canceled the fall lecture, which was to feature Palestinian poet, Mohammed El-Kurd, less than a week before the event was scheduled to take place. Haymarket Books is proud to join the lecture series and their other co-sponsors and to provide a virtual platform for this important talk.

Mohammed El-Kurd is an award-winning poet, writer, journalist and organizing from Jerusalem, Occupied Palestine. He is the Palestinian correspondent for The Nation and a Civic Media Fellow at the University of Southern California. Mohammed will talk about the representation and misrepresentation of Palestinians in the U.S.
