Discussant Tania Tamari Nasir

The Palestinian Museum will host the launch of Palestinian author Raja Shehadeh’s book Going Home: A Walk Through Fifty Years of Occupation. Walking along the streets in which he grew up, Raja Shehadeh tells the stories of the people, the relationships, the houses, and the businesses that were and still are cornerstones of the city and his community. The author describes the interwoven past and present of Ramallah’s visual, social and political landscape and the settlements that surround it over the last 50 years.

Raja Shehadeh is a Palestinian author, lawyer and the founder of the pioneering Palestinian human rights organization al-Haq. Shehadeh is the author of several acclaimed books including Strangers in the House; Occupation Diaries; Language of War, Language of Peace; and Where the Line is Drawn. In 2008, he won the Orwell Prize for Palestinian Walks, published by Profile. Shehadeh lives and works in Ramallah, Palestine.
