November 2, 2017, marks the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration by which British colonial authorities authorized the establishment of a Zionist settler project in Palestine.

Professor Rabab Abdulhadi, Director and Senior Scholar of the Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas Studies and Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies/Race and Resistance Studies at San Francisco State University, will discuss the dialectics of 100 years of colonialism and resistance in Palestine. In the process she will historicize the contradictions of class, gender and nation, problematize feminist frameworks and Palestine gender and sexuality studies and propose a conceptual framework for a Palestinian strategy of liberation.

Before joining SFSU, she served as the first director of the Center for Arab American Studies at the University of Michigan, Dearborn.
