JADMAG Issue 6.1 "1967"
Edited by Sherene Seikaly
The last two years have been chock full of commemorations, from World War I to the Russian Revolution and many in between. With each of these commemorations, scholars and observers attempt to put history in conversation with the global darkness of our times. Here we commemorate the 1967 Six Day War. On 5 June 1967, Israel tripled its territory, occupying the West Bank, Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem, the Sinai Peninsula, and the Golan Heights. The Israeli army had put a decisive end to the power and ambition of both pan-Arabism and the armies that were meant to fight on its behalf. The defeat was rapid and deep. The consequences would be just as deep and continue to constitute of the present.
A group of Jadaliyya editors and contributors have come together here to think, not about the war itself but about its historical, territorial, temporal, epistemological, and affective legacies and registers.
