Mada al-Carmel has recently launched a new project which centers on Palestinian autobiographical writing. By inviting community members and activists to write about and reflect upon their own experiences, Mada hopes this project will offer up fresh perspectives on the significant political and historical events which have shaped Palestinian life in Israel.

In the paper “The Arab Student Movement in Israeli Universities: The clash between the Land Day generation and the ruling establishment”, Amir Makhoul, a Palestinian writer and leader, who previously held the position of President of the In-Country Union of Arab University Students, draws on his personal experiences in the student movement. Makhoul also offers an analysis of the state of the student movement today, noting the huge array of challenges that the movement now has to confront.
