In this talk, Maurice Ebileeni explores how the Palestinian homeland is being imagined in multiple languages from a variety of positions both locally and globally and wishes to discuss unsettling questions about this current situation. He also invites us to look to the future to speculate about how a Palestinian nation might still house the notion of home for an increasingly diverse Palestinian population.
Maurice Ebileeni is a member of faculty in the English department at the University of Haifa. He is the author of Conrad, Faulkner, and the Problem of Nonsense and Being There, Being Here: Palestinian Writings in the World, and his work on Palestinian literature and culture has appeared in Comparative Literature, The Journal of Postcolonial Writing, Interventions, and Hebrew-language Ot, among others.
