Guest Lecture

This week is lecture week.  After my extended discussion of the origins of the Lebanese civil war and questions of belonging on Tuesday, the students were treated to a remarkable lecture by my colleague James Gelvin from UCLA.  He was on campus to participate in a panel on the Arab Uprisings with Amjad Atallah, Al Jazeera bureau chief for the Americas.  Professor Gelvin placed the Israel-Palestine context in global context using two timelines, both drawn by hand on a white board.  Some of us need no technology.
