On Queer Palestine and the Intersectional Critique
9 jun. 2021 - I have been wanting for a while now to dedicate one of my instagram-book-posts to Sarah Schulman’s ‘Israel Palestine and the Queer International’ and one to ‘Queer Palestine and the Empire of Critique’ by Dr. Sa’ed Atshan. With selected passages from each book, as I usually do, because there is so much in both books that I know a lot of people can learn from. But with everything that is happening at the moment, I wanted to prioritise making people, especially those in Europe and North America, aware of these books as soon as possible and to not only limit it to an instagram post. I am sure there are many books that you can read / listen to, to inform yourself, but I wanted to highlight these two books that I’ve learned a lot from and spoke to me the most.
