A series on public critique amid settler colonialism
On Courageous Writing
Public commentary in Palestine and so called Australia
What responsibility do we have to centre courageous critique? What are the unacknowledged limits imposed by liberal and settler institutions on public-facing writing and speech?
Join writer and editor Ramzy Baroud, poet and critic Jeanine Leane, poet and editor Evelyn Araluen, and scholar-activist Tasnim Sammak, as they discuss the vital role of public-facing writing and speech and the liberal forms of settler silencing.
This discussion is part of a series on Palestine, anticolonial solidarity and public critique amid settler colonialism at the Institute of Postcolonial Studies in collaboration with the Australia Palestine Advocacy Network (APAN) and Free Palestine Melbourne.
