Ilan Pappé: Prospects for Peace in Israel-Palestine

May 22 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5 - $10
Internationally known historian and author Dr. Ilan Pappé is a native son of Israel and a former senior lecturer of history and political science at Haifa University. Since 2008 he has been on the faculty at the University of Exeter, U.K. The author of 12 books, Dr. Pappé is well known for his scholarship and commentary on the Middle East, especially the history of Israel and Palestine. His most recent publication, The Modern Middle East: A Social and Cultural History, is a textbook on the urban, rural, cultural, and gender histories that influence current political and economic developments in the region. Pappe’s meticulous research examines the socio-political outcomes of the creation and nature of the State of Israel. He traces the roots of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and raises compelling questions around the injustice done to the indigenous Palestinians who were forced to migrate or live as an occupied people in their own land.

Presented by: Diocese of Olympia, Episcopal Bishop’s Committee for Israel/Palestine with support from Kairos Puget Sound Coalition
