Mada al-Carmel has recently published the 37th edition of its online journal Jadal. It features essays from Palestinian doctoral students who participated in Mada’s 2019 PhD student seminar. In their introduction to the edition, editors Areen Hawari and Dr. Mohanned Mustafa describe the importance of generating rigorous Arabic-language scholarship, and promoting Palestinian perspectives in academia. This is particularly vital with regards to the research of Palestinian scholars who live inside the Green Line and who work in Israeli universities often dominated by Israeli perspectives and theoretical approaches.

The articles contained in this edition centre on three main areas: historical approaches to Palestine and Palestinian issues; religion and identity, with a particular focus on Palestinian Muslim women; and health and education in Israel from the perspective of the Palestinian community.
