“History is Relevant: The Israeli New History and its Legacy”

The Department of History and the Social Justice Institute will host “History is Relevant: The Israeli New History and Its Legacy,” a lecture by Ilan Pappé, professor of history at the University of Exeter.

The lecture will be held Thursday, Sept. 13, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Iris S. and Bert L. Wolstein Research Building auditorium.

About the lecture

Pappé first will revisit the emergence of the Israeli New History as an interpretation of 1948, and the post-Zionist debate that followed this new interpretation. He then will assess the impact of the New History on Israel and Palestine since its emergence.

The talk will conclude with an update on the present historiographical orientations in historical research on Israel and Palestine.
