In this presentation Hanson discusses a number of related projects, scholarly and pedagogical, that question the absence of Palestine in 19th C literary studies.

Drawing from their forthcoming introduction to a special issue on romanticism and Palestine forthcoming in Studies in Romanticism and collaborative work designing lesson plans for classroom use, they argue that romantic and Victorian literary criticism’s rootedness in Judeo-Christian theology and the nation-state has long naturalized an epistemological and theological erasure of Palestine from our fields. Based on interviews and conversations with Palestinian teachers and scholars, they ask us to consider practices of anti-colonial collaboration that work against a narcotic historicism that disciplines our interest in the past.
