Join us as Dr. Finkelstein discusses the situation in Gaza, the peace process and the prospect of another regional war in a lecture entitled:

Israel and Palestine: Past, Present and Future

Finkelstein was awarded his doctorate by Princeton University in 1988, and has subsequently taught at Rutgers, New York University, Brooklyn College, Hunter College and DePaul University (Chicago). His academic research has concentrated on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its representation in political discourse.
