#var:page_name# cover

Why is it so difficult to speak about the Palestinian people on the Case Western Reserve University campus? Ted Steinberg, the Davee Professor in the CWRU Department of History, will give a lecture about his life as a Brooklyn-born Jew, while elaborating on Edward Said’s thoughts about the Palestinian question and its place in university life. Steinberg’s talk will challenge us to think about diversity, equality, and our common humanity in light of what he sees as one of the greatest oppressions in modern history. An open discussion with the audience will follow. Free & Open to the Community.

Location: Mandel Community Studies Center, 11402 Bellflower Road
