“Israeli History X”

Join us Thursday, November 17 for a lecture by visiting Professor Daniel Fridberg!

Many studies have demonstrated that ongoing violent conflicts often cause those involved to identify more with their own group identity and to engage in ever increasing hostile attitudes and behaviors toward the “other” group. But what about those who turn away from violence? What are the reasons and implications for their identity and social position? Daniel Fridberg, a peacebuilding practitioner working on the Israeli and Palestinian conflict, will discuss his work with Israeli soldiers who choose to disobey orders or object to continuing their military service altogether after being stationed among the Palestinian civil population.Israeli History X
