This week we highlight various NEWTON texts relevant to the study of Palestine-Israel. The authors of these texts write from a wide range of perspectives, disciplinary approaches, and political frameworks. We encourage you to integrate these texts into your curricula in the coming semesters.
If you wish to recommend a book or peer-reviewed article for a feature in NEWTON—whether on Palestine-Israel or on any other topics relevant to the region—please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To stay up to date with ongoing discussions by scholars and instructors in the field, sign up for Jadaliyya’s Pedagogy Section.
