Postcolonial Research Seminar Series

Ilan Pappe, The Palestinian Catastrophe of 1948: Politics and History

This year marks 70 years to the Palestinian catastrophe (the nakba). This talk, by of one of Israel's leading historians, examines the history of the nakba and its main causes and consequences. It also interrogates the changing ways in which it has been represented and debated in Israeli historical writing and public discourse. Why is reckoning with the nakba essential for a just resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? 

Ilan Pappe is Professor of History at the University of Exeter and author of several books, including The Making of the Arab-Israeli Conflict, 1947-1951 (1992), A History of Modern Palestine: One Land, Two Peoples (2006), The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine (2007), The Forgotten Palestinians: A History of the Palestinians in Israel (2013), and The Idea of Israel: A History of Power and Knowledge (2016).
