[Dublin] Lecture: Exile and Memory: Palestinian Refugees and 1948 with Ghada Karmi (TCD CRS)
Dr. Ghada Karmi will formally open the Conflict Research Society annual conference at Trinity College Dublin (University of Dublin) at 7.00pm on September 7th, 2016. She will give a keynote speech on the topic of ‘Exile and Memory: Palestinian Refugees and 1948’. This public lecture will be open to both the conference delegates (around 100 academics and researchers from the UK and Ireland) and members of the public.
Ghada Karmi was born in Jerusalem and was forced out of her home with her family in 1948. She grew up in England and went on to become a doctor of medicine, an academic, activist and writer. She is currently a research fellow at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter. Her memoir, ‘In search of Fatima’, was widely acclaimed. It was followed by ‘Married to another man’, an analysis of the one-state solution, and most recently her new book, ‘Return’ deals with that theme.
Note this is a Public Lecture: All are welcome to attend and registration is not required.
