This programming attracts prominent public intellectuals and distinguished scholars of Palestine.
CPS aims to advance the academic understanding of Palestine’s past and present through research and analysis, teaching, public lectures, book launches, and conferences on such topics as the assaults on Gaza, settler colonialism, and the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement.
To promote and communicate legal scholarship on Palestinians living under Israeli rule, CPS brings together leading lawyers and international legal scholars in workshops on such topics as military law in the West Bank, the legal aspects of the Palestinian state question, the ongoing nature of the legal Nakba, citizenship issues, and property dispossession.
To encourage and present the vital work of Palestinians in the arts, CPS hosts poets, authors, playwrights, actors, and film and theater directors.
From the outset, Palestinian film has been the centerpiece of CPS arts programming. With its incisive and turbulent artistic imagination this cinema eloquently expresses the depth and range of Palestinian predicaments and possibilities.
