dc.description.abstract In 1948, Palestinians were dispersed after Al-Nakba in different regions around the world. Their status as being refugees, diasporas, or even citizens has become dependent to the country they reached, the hostland, after their exile. However, Palestinians have created transnational networks, disregarding the fact that their homeland was lost. These networks have helped in maintaining their collective identity. Based on the relation between the semiotics, constructivism, and transnationalism, this paper problematizes the status of Palestinians. It shows how images, more specifically posters, have played an important role in reflecting the identity of Palestinians. As for the framework of the comparative study, the countries to be taken into account are: Palestine, Lebanon, and the United States. en_US
