‘Orienting the Tour’ with Sarah Irving (Leiden University) will look at Stephan Hanna Stephan’s English travel guides of Palestine produced in the 1940s that were predominantly marketed to British and Commonwealth troops on leave. This lecture will consider Palestinian attempts to ‘write back’ against orientalist depictions.
