Faculty Panel: Perspectives on Gaza

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Time: 6:00PM - 8:00PM

Location: Joseph M. Bryan Jr. Auditorium, Frank Family Science Center


The faculty panel "Perspectives on Gaza: Israel, Palestine, and the Ghosts of Catastrophe" will include Diya Abdo (English); Joseph Cole (Philosophy); Betsy Mesard (Religious Studies); Jeremy Rinker (Peace & Conflict Studies); Max Carter (Friends Center); and staff from N.C. Hillel. The event is free and open to the public.

Among the topics panelists will address are: "Asymmetry and Constructing the Language of Exclusion;" "The Limits of Speaking on Catastrophe: Confessions of a Palestinian Teacher;" "Competing Narratives: Compartments We Live in and Their Impediment to Understanding;" "Rationalizing War: How to Provide Moral Cover for a Catastrophe;" and "Does Hamas Want Catastrophe?"

The broad spectrum of perspectives on the panel is hoped to provide the beginning of a constructive dialogue in the wider community about the complex issues involved in the current crisis. This is the first event in an ongoing series of programs on campus this fall about Israel, Palestine and Gaza, sponsored by the Campus Ministry Office and the Center for Principled Problem Solving.
