This event is part of the speaker series, “50 Years of Occupation, 1967-2017: Israel/Palestine, Histories and Futures,” co-sponsored by the Duke Center for Jewish Studies, the Forum for Scholars and Publics, Humanities Futures @ the Franklin Humanities Institute, and the Duke University Middle East Studies Center.
