Next Week: Peter Beinart and Rashid Khalidi in Conversation

Peter Beinart & Rashid Khalidi in Conversation

Jewish Currents has recently launched a membership program. By becoming a member, you will receive a Print & Digital Subscription to our magazine, invitations to exclusive events—like this one—and more. We hope you’ll join us!

On Friday, January 19th at 12pm ET, we invite you to a conversation between Jewish Currents editor-at-large Peter Beinart and eminent Palestinian American historian Rashid Khalidi. The discussion will focus on the latest iteration of what Khalidi has called “the hundred years’ war on Palestine,” asking how Israel’s most recent assault is consistent with, and how it departs from, that longer history; where the Palestinian national movement goes from here; why Palestinian freedom has become a defining issue for progressive activists; and what the crackdown on pro-Palestine activism means for US universities.
