This episode of Salaam Shalom: Report on Palestine/Israel is devoted entirely to the broadcast of a compelling presentation by Dr. John Collins, professor of Global Studies and International Relations at St. Lawrence College, given on October 11, 2012, at the University of Vermont. His talk, “Palestine: Laboratory for the Future,” is grounded to the historical reality that colonial territories have long been sights of experimentation for new forms of violence, repression, social control, solidarity and resistance that have broader global implications. Palestine is no exception. Collins asserts that there is much we can learn about the future of settler-colonialism, contemporary globalization, permanent war, and indigenous resistance movements by excavating Palestine’s past and its struggle against colonialism and occupation. Dr. Collins’ talk is based on his most recent book, Global Palestine, published in 2011. He is also the author of Occupied By Memory: The Intifada Generation and The Palestinian State of Emergency and co-editor, with Ross Glover, of Collateral Language: A User's Guide to America's New War.
