Rania Lee Khalil's research, The Third World Ecology Trilogy investigates the harms of colonialism across interspecies habitats in Palestine, Egypt and the continent of Africa more broadly, at a time of widespread anticolonial revolutions in the mid 20th century. Using the artists' video and familial archives, it remembers third world feminist and indigenous movements instructive to ecological thought and artistic research in the present. Through artistic practice and three accompanying published articles, it outlines the development of the Khalil’s embodied image making methodology central to this research and artistic practice.
