Dr Walaa Ramadan

Diana Allan gives a powerful account of the Palestinian refugee experience today providing a provocative ethnographic examination of everyday life in the Shatila camp in Beirut. This retrospective scholarly gaze is presented by anthropologist and filmmaker Allan who founds and co-directs the Nakba Archive, a testimonial project that has recorded filmed interviews with over 500 first-generation Palestinian refugees living in Lebanon. The author has observed first-hand the lives of Palestinians in the Lebanese camps in the 2000s which has no doubt enabled her to provide such an in-depth account.
