Dr. Hala Khamis Nassar is an Associate Professor, an academic and administrator. Currently she holds the position of Assistant to the Vice President of Academic Affairs at Bethlehem University and the Director of the Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Learning.

The late Palestinian author, Ghassan Kanafani coined the term Palestinian Resistance Literature under Occupation and his widely read novella Men in the Sun, written 1963, sheds light on Palestinian refugees’ influx into the gulf countries where they were looking for better life and job opportunities.

Relying on settler colonialism and apartheid as analytical concepts, this presentation deals with the mechanisms of the occupation  and how it shapes both power and resistance, the nature of the state and society, as well as the possibilities of social and political mobilisation.  It will investigate how teaching Kanafani’s work for the Faculty of Education students can be used as an educational tool to resist Israeli annihilation of Palestinian history and culture and provide awareness to the plight of refugees worldwide.
