The Regular Working Group is a series for aggressive listeners. This night is dedicated to listening to water stories.

Muna Dajani

Dr. Muna Dajani is an action researcher with a background in critical political ecology. Her work aims to understand environmental and water governance through decolonial and critical lenses, paying attention to communities' histories and relations with water and land. She holds a PhD from the Department of Geography and Environment at the London School of Economics (LSE). Her doctoral research focused on examining community struggles for rights to water and land resources in settler colonial contexts in Palestine and the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, with special attention to how farming practices acquire political subjectivity. Her work also focuses on the Upper Jordan and Yarmouk River Basins, both exploring communities disrupted relations with water in highly contested and politicised transboundary river basins. 

Yasamin

yasamin writes, makes docufictions, and teaches. Through time travel and trans-local collaborative processes, they write of informal economies, everyday sci-fi, and collective reproduction of resting and the commons. They hold an MFA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths, University of London.

Bint Mbareh

The night is threaded together using improvised sounds by Bint Mbareh. She is a sound researcher thinking of water in the Palestinian context as a way to challenge the epistemological authority of the settler colony. By weaving together the sonic, story-based and video research of Yasamin and Dr. Muna, Bint makes the connection between time colonisation and water colonisation across geographies with specificity and sympathy.
