LECTURE: DEFENDING THE MILIEU IN GLOBAL PALESTINE // JOHN COLLINS

Co-Sponsored 3CT Event

 

March 11 2015


In this lecture, building on the ideas presented in his book Global Palestine, Professor Collins explores Palestine as a prophetic and microcosmic node within a larger global system. Paul Virilio’s concept of “war on the milieu,” when put in dialogue with key insights from the growing body of scholarship in comparative settler colonial studies, can help us conceptualize the nature of this system as an ongoing struggle between the structures of permanent war and the local practices of popular defense and everyday occupation.
