In this interview, the managing editor of Tadween Publishing, Kylie Broderick, sits down with Professor Sunaina Maira (UC Davis) to discuss her book, "Jil Oslo: Palestinian Hip Hop, Youth Culture, and the Youth Movement." March 15th, 2018 | English Interviewed by Kylie Broderick Summary of "Jil Oslo": Based on ethnographic research in Palestine, primarily during the Arab uprisings, this book explores the intersections between new youth cultures and protest politics among Palestinian youth in the West Bank and Israel. It focuses on Palestinian hip hop and the youth movement that emerged in 2011 as overlapping sites where new cultural and political imaginaries are being produced in the Oslo generation ("jil Oslo"). Challenging the Oslo framework of national politics and of cultural expression, these young artists and activists are rethinking and reviving the possibility of a decolonial present.
