Rescheduled Sidore Lecture: Reflections on Israel and Palestine
KEENE, N.H., 3/5/09 - Dr. Stephen Shalom, professor at William Patterson State University, will present Keene State College’s 2009 Sidore lecture, “Can We End the Unending Conflict? Reflections on Israel and Palestine,” on Monday, April 27, at 7 p.m. in the Mabel Brown Room of the Student Center. This lecture was originally scheduled for March 2, but was cancelled due because of the snow storm.
Professor Shalom has written and spoken widely on U.S. foreign policy and on the Middle East. Among his books are Imperial Alibis: Rationalizing US Intervention after the Cold War and Which Side Are You On? An Introduction to Politics. He is the editor of a dialogue between Noam Chomsky and Gilbert Achcar, Perilous Power: The Middle East and U.S. Foreign Policy. He serves on the editorial board of New Politics and is a regular contributor to Z Magazine and ZNet. He was in Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon this past year.
The Sidore Memorial Foundation and the Sidore Series have been established to support campus presentations by speakers on emerging ideas and to enhance faculty efforts to challenge students and the wider community to participate in dialogue around original and sometimes controversial issues facing society.
This event is free and open to the public, and a reception will follow the presentation. For more information, contact Linda Baker at 603-358-2611.
