Subjects addressed included Palestinian identity from late Ottoman times to the present, political activism, refugee movements, class (elite, urban, peasant, etc), secularism and religiosity, resistance, adaptations to political systems, cultural productions, and literature and poetry. This project is from the assignment that was to choose a theme and create a digital exhibit around that theme drawing from the Palestine Poster Project Archives ( Each student curated an exhibit (digitally using Omeka) that featured a substantial background/history introduction, material on the theme/topic, and information and analysis for each poster, etc.
