For over four decades, events in Palestine-Israel have provoked
raging conflicts within British universities around issues of free
speech, 'extremism', antisemitism and Islamophobia. But why is this
conflict so significant for student activists living at such a
geographical distance from the region itself? And what role do
emotive, polarised communications around Palestine-Israel play in
the life of British academic institutions committed to the ideal of
free expression? This book draws on original ethnographic research
with student activists on different sides of this conflict to
initiate a conversation with students, academics and members of the
public who are concerned with the transnational politics of
Palestine-Israel and with the changing role of the public
university. It shows how, in an increasingly globalised world that
is shaped by entangled histories of European antisemitism and
colonial violence, ethnography can open up ethical responses to
questions of justice
