Event - Competing Narratives of the 1948 War with Dr. Maayan Hilel


January 6, 2023

In-Person and Virtual by Zoom

The war of 1948 has shaped the history of the modern Middle East more than any other single event, and it continues to shape both Israeli and Palestinian societies to this day. We will discuss the major events that led to the outbreak of the war, its main stages, and the different, even contrasting, narratives Israelis and Palestinians created about it. We will examine the diverse voices of those who participated in or experienced the war to shed new light on this constitutive and complex event.
