How would a map of Palestinian culture look like? The world system of literary production for Palestinians has been globally spread out since the Nakba (1948) and their dispersion throughout the Arab and Western world (the shatāt). Mapping diasporic or exilic literature begs a global perspective as well as a dynamic tool that can track movement and change across time and space. This Digital Humanities project visually maps the circulation, international movement, and (im)mobility of Palestinian authors and specific Palestinian texts.
