Shifting paradigms: how British politics has depicted Palestine

Hollis, R. (2016). Shifting paradigms: how British politics has depicted Palestine


To bring something new to discussions about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not easy. It has been discussed from almost every angle imaginable and yet defies agreement. If anything, today the conflict arouses more passionate argumentation than ever and seemingly serves as a vehicle through which contemporary Britons choose to express their fears and aspirations about their own identity. Yet in this connection, Rosemary Hollis argues that it is worthwhile exploring further just what is meant by national or cultural identity, using British representations of the Palestinians as a case study.
