Event description

Description

Palestine + 100 is the first anthology of science fiction from Palestine. The book poses a question to contemporary Palestinian writers: what might your home city look like in the year 2048 – exactly 100 years after Nakba, the displacement of more than 700,000 people? The result: contemporary Palestinian writers offering their own spin on the science fiction and fantasy genre.


Covering a range of approaches – from SF noir, to nightmarish dystopia, to high-tech farce – these stories use the blank canvas of the future to reimagine the Palestinian experience today. Along the way, we encounter drone swarms, digital uprisings, time-bending VR, peace treaties that span parallel universes, and even a Palestinian superhero, in the first anthology of science fiction from Palestine.


Join one of the contributors to this groundbreaking new collection of science-fiction stories, British Palestinian writer, Selma Dabbagh and the editor, Basma Ghalayini, as they discuss an anthology that uses possible futures as a vehicle for exploring the politics of the present.
