Palestine + 100: Stories From A Century After The Nakba

  • DINA Venue 32 Cambridge Street Sheffield, England, S1 4HP United Kingdom (map)

Palestine + 100 poses a question to 10 contemporary Palestinian writers: what might

your home country look like in the year 2048 – exactly 100 years after Nakba, the displacement of more than 700,000 people after the Israeli War of Independence?

How might that war reach across a century of repair and rebirth, and affect the state of the country – its politics, religion, language, and culture – and how might Palestine have finally escaped it, and found its own peace, a hundred years down the line?

This anthology showcases ten contemporary Arabic writers offering their own spin on science fiction and fantasy.

Readings by authors and contributors Selma Dabbagh & Ahmed Masoun
