Virtual Session via MS Teams
The Mitchell Institute is excited to announce the first in the series of Fireside Chats for 2020-21.
The first Virtual Fireside Chat for semester 1 will take place on 30 September, 2020 at 5:00pm. PhD Student Sonia Najjar will deliver a presentation titled ‘Being Palestinian: What to Do When a People Are Not Mentioned in the Law?'
Sonia Najjar is a PhD candidate in the School of Law. Before focusing on her PhD she devoted several years to working on Jerusalem through the EU, UN NGOs and local organisations. She will be presenting her analysis of Israel’s 2018 Nation State Law which forms part of her thesis on settler colonialism, civil society and their role in processes of replacement of the ‘other’.
This event will be hosted through Teams. You will receive a link and further information about how to join the meeting after confirming your attendance.
While we can’t provide the wine or snacks this time, you are encouraged to bring your own!
Please email the Mitchell Institute firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 12 noon on Tuesday 29 September to register and receive the link for this event.
The Fireside Chat series is student-led and is organised by Mitchell Institute PhD student Allely Albert. The “Fireside Chat” is a reference to American history and politics, and also acts as a tribute to Senator George J. Mitchell.
The Fireside Chats allows both staff and students to casually present their research to the community in a social setting. One of the key aims is to provide a platform to showcase the interdisciplinary research going on across the Institute and to enable networking for postgraduate students and researchers at a range of career stages.
The Fireside Chats take place on the last Wednesday of each month at the Mitchell Institute.
