As part of the Global Hot Spots Lecture Series, UW-Madison Political Science Professor Nadev Shelef will be speaking on the dimensions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on March 13th at 1:30 in room 121 at Pyle Center (702 Langdon Street). The Global Hot Spots Series is a free, thought-provoking lecture series designed to encourage Madison-area learners to engage in current events and global affairs.
Nadav Shelef (Ph.D. University of California, Berkeley, 2005) is the Harvey M. Meyerhoff Assistant Professor of Israel Studies and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science. His current project, Evolving Nationalism: Homeland, Religion, and National Identity in Israel explains how and why Zionist movements changed their conception of the Land of Israel, who can be Israeli, and the appropriate role of Judaism in the Jewish state. Extending beyond Israel, his teaching and research interests involve theoretical approaches to nationalism and the intersection of religion and politics in the Middle East and beyond.
NOTE: The Registration Deadline for this event is March 11, 2009. Visit The Global Hotspots Series Webpage for more information.
