dc.description.abstractPushing back on the romanticism of the Palestinian nation as a monolith ever-reaching for statehood, my research considers the diverse articulations of life, desire and aspiration across the topography of Palestinian identity. I focus on the small, but significant Christian community living in the Bethlehem area, exploring how their experiences of faith, history, and identity, as well as their conceptualizations of autonomy are brought to bear not only on questions of futurity, but also on the ways in which future is invoked in the everyday (Vizenor, 1999). By charting this community’s course as they seek increased personal and intra-communal autonomy, I examine their imbrications with other nodes of Palestinian identity (Palestinian Muslims and the Palestinian diaspora in Latin America) that underscore moments of tension and solidarity among and between these groups, highlighting how futurity and colonial time are contested in the process.
