Ethnic homelands 800x600

Please join the Research Priority Area in Rights and Justice and the Centre for Research in Race and Rights for a panel discussion on ethnic homelands in contemporary and historical perspective.

As regions and territories connected with distinct ethnic, cultural and national groups, homelands engender a sense of place and belonging as well as claims to specific histories, memories and traditions. Drawing on expertise in history, politics, global studies, and social and cultural theory, our panellists will examine the development of homelands in the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands, Israel-Palestine and Egypt. How have patterns of settler colonialism, conquest and nationalism shaped the emergence of these homelands? And how have these homelands and the deep affiliations they produce become tied to histories of resistance and conflict and to demands for freedom, justice and equality in our contemporary world?

Speakers include:

  • Professor John R. Chávez (William P. Clements Department of History, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas): “Mexicans: Aliens or Natives in the U.S. Southwest?”
  • Dr Teo Todorova (School of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Nottingham): “Discourses of Bi-Nationalism in Critical Israeli Activist Thought”
  • Dr Amal Treacher Kabesh (School of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Nottingham): “Egypt: The Power of Enduring Nationalism”

Free, refreshments available.

Please book online.
