    A mix of academic essays and personal reflection I skipped the literature reviews it wasn't really my thing but beside those I really liked most of the pieces I read

  2. Diala Amal Diala Amal says:

    The pieces were of uneven uality focus and depth In addition many addressed the same themes in ways that felt repetitive rather than cohesive Two of my favorite essays were Trajectories of Crossings by Nayrouz Abu Hatoum and Yafa Jarrar's Palestinian Women Freedom Fighters

  3. Ghaida Moussa Ghaida Moussa says:

    I co edited the book so I won't rate it but I wanted to leave a note to thank you readers for picking it up and engaging with this collection of incredible writers we've had the pleasure to work with I am glad their writing found home in this little anthology and I hope you enjoyed it
