Tasnim Mahmoud Sammak is a PhD candidate at Monash University’s Faculty of Education, a single mum of two boys and a local Palestinian Muslim organiser. Her research engages critical race counter-storytelling to write messy 9/11 gen subjectivities, imaginaries and visceralities into knowledge. Tasnim’s grandparents were exiled from Yaffa during the Nakba in 1948 to a refugee camp in Gaza then to Al-Hussein refugee camp in Jordan after Israel’s annexations of 1967. She writes essays and commentary from a politicised identity that have found home in Djed Press, Overland, Podium and Mangal Media to the dismay of White and Zionist supremacists.
