Historian Ilan Pappe will lecture at University of Kent on Thursday 22 March on the history and consequences of the Nakba, the catastrophe 70 years ago that saw an exodus of Palestinians in the face of Zionist forces and massacres.

The lecture will also interrogate the changing ways in which the Nakba 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).

The seminar, from 4pm-5.15pm in Darwin Lecture Theatre 1, will be followed by drinks in the English Common Room.
