Palestinians and the City

by Nathalie Handal

In these text-maps by Palestinian writers, you will find a fusion of voices. Writers were asked to write a portrait of the city or town their families come from—experienced or imagined. They were to draw from family members, stories, dreams, or other channels. 

The contributors are listed under their city of origin; those who come from two different cities are placed under the city they wrote about.

This map is an architectural metaphor. It’s a construction site, where readers can watch the map being built with every feature.
