Ilan Pappe - Oakland Lecture
Dr. Ilan Pappe is a senior lecturer of Political Science at Haifa University. He is one of Israel's "new historians," so called because their writings, based on access to material recently released by the British and Israeli archives, has started to undermine myths about the foundation and early years of the Israeli state.
Pappe has been threatened with dismissal by the university because of his support for a Jewish graduate student whose dissertation had brought to public attention to a massacre in an Arab village by Israeli forces in 1948. More recently, Pappe has been attacked for his support of a boycott of Israeli academic institutions.
Introduced by Stanford Professor Khalil Barhoum
