Palestine + 100

Edited by Basma Ghalayini

STORIES FROM A CENTURY AFTER THE NAKBA

Palestine + 100 poses a question to ten contemporary Palestinian writers: what might their country look like in the year 2048 – exactly a century after the Nakba (the ‘catastrophe’)? How might this event – which in 1948 saw over 700,000 Palestinian Arabs forced to flee their homes – and its myriad repercussions reach across a century of war, economic blockades, humanitarian crises, and political isolation, and shape the country and its people in the year 2048? Will a lasting peace have been reached?

From time-travelling memory implants, to the political possibilities of blockchain financing, these stories explore every side of the present conflict (and where it might lead), as well as use the canvas of the future to explore old struggles in a new light.
