[New publication]: Reproducing a Culture of Martyrdom – The Palestinian mother, discourse and legitimization


Um Nidal, the iconic 'Mother of Martyrs' poses with her son before he leaves to attack.

Though I may have wrote this paper a few years back as part of a WGS capstone, after some updates it is being turned into a book chapter by the good people at Palgrave Macmillan.

I am super excited to be a part of this great upcoming collection being put together by  Dr. Claire Phelan under the title, “Mothers, Motherhood and War: An International Perspective.”  After I read the CFP and saw the potential for collaboration, I gave this paper a good ol’ edit and am quite pleased with the results.

For a preview of what to expect, check out my first draft at:
