Our international project on Palestine History & Heritage Project (PaHH) at Copenhagen Univ. theological department started in 2014, based on what is known as “Copenhagen School” & their critical approach to the biblical narrative, mainly Niels Peter, Thomas Thompson, Keith Whitelam & other prominent Historiens and Archeologists. (https://teol.ku.dk/english/dept/the-palestine-history-and-heritage-curriculum-project/)
A series of conferences and seminars took place in Copenhagen, London, & Palestine, with the participation of around 40 scholars from different international universities. The book “A new Critical Approach to the History of Palestine” was published in 2019, as a first step towards our intended goal that should cover the critical history of Palestine from Stone Age until Nowadays.
On march 2023; The Palestine Research Centre hosted 35 Palestinian Researchers to review Palestine History & Archeology, under the slogan “Palestinians Themselves Write Their Own History”تاريخفلسطينيكتببأيديفلسطينية . This conference is a huge step forward that fills a historical gap in reviewing & documenting Palestine History, based on research & science; especially when Western Main Stream Media & Academic Institutes still trying hard to falsify and negate the existence of the People of Palestine & and its rich & continual presence for a million of years ago, as Palestinian experts: Hamdan Taha, Isa Saree, Hani Nur, Mohammad Mraqtin, Isam Halayqa, Muawiya Ibrahim – only to mention a few – have shown.
(NB) My contribution was a lecture: “Oral History & the Lively Memory of Lubya” -will be published later by the Research Centre.
