Duke professor Frances Hasso (@nasawiyya) guest hosts a conversation with Louis Allday, founding editor of  LiberatedTexts.com, as part of her  Spring 2024 course. The pair discuss the significance, relevance, and insight of three books highlighted by Liberated Texts previously; “Zionist Colonialism in Palestine” by Fayez Sayegh, “On Zionist Literature” by Ghassan Kanafani and “Zionist Relations with Nazi Germany” by Faris Glubb.

They also discuss these articles by Louis:

“What existence is worth”: The Martyrdom of Refaat Alareer

“A Race Against Time”: The life and death of Ghassan Kanafani

From the syllabus:

"My initial goal was to give a platform to Palestinian artists and intellectuals working in Palestine but with limited opportunities to work or share their work outside of a permanent crisis mode produced by the myriad forms of violence attached to Israeli colonization. This violence regularly reaches university campuses and touches every dimension of life. The syllabus is idiosyncratic in the sense that it represents my intellectual and pedagogical interests for this seminar. I encourage people to use it as an educational resource and to take parts for their own teaching."
