SOAS Palestine Studies Series

30 January 2020

The question of Palestine is one of the most complex and protracted issues of our time. A country under military occupation with the largest body of refugees in the world, Palestine is a topic of tremendous political and cultural significance, involving regional and international players as well as an army of humanitarian and non-governmental organisations.

Seeking to contribute to this ever-more intricate picture, the SOAS Palestine Studies series aims to promote innovative research in the study of Palestine, Palestinians and the Israel-Palestine conflict all as a ‘crucial component’ of Middle Eastern and world politics. The first Western academic series entirely dedicated to this topic, SOAS Palestine Studies draws from a variety of disciplinary fields, including history, politics, economics, media, social anthropology and development studies.

Key areas of focus include:

  • Political economy of Palestine and the Israel-Palestine conflict
  • Regional politics and social movements
  • Terrorism and ideology
  • Nationalism and identity
  • Literary and cultural studies
  • Diaspora, exile and refugee status
  • Art, film and visual culture

This series is published in collaboration with I.B. Tauris.
