Enemies and Neighbours: Arabs and Jews in Palestine and Israel
29/11/2017 6:30pm - 29/11/2017 8:00pm
Middle East Centre, LSE
Ever since the Ottoman Empire was defeated and British colonial rule began in 1917, Jews and Arabs have struggled for control of the Holy Land. Israel's independence in 1948 in the wake of the Holocaust was a triumph for the Zionist movement but a catastrophe - 'nakba' in Arabic - for the native Palestinian majority. This talk launches Ian Black's book ‘Enemies and Neighbours: Enemies and Neighbours: Arabs and Jews in Palestine and Israel, 1917-2017'.

Enemies and Neighbours: Arabs and Jews in Palestine and Israel
29/11/2017 6:30pm
Middle East Centre, LSE
This talk launches Ian Black's book Enemies and Neighbours: Enemies and Neighbours: Arabs and Jews in Palestine and Israel, 1917–2017, in which he traces how, half a century after the watershed of the 1967 war, hopes for a two-state solution and an end to occupation have all but disappeared. Drawing on a wide range of sources—from declassified documents to oral histories to his own vivid on-the-ground reporting—Black recreates the major milestones in the most polarizing conflict of the modern age from both sides.
The Worlds of Mandaean Priests Documenting an Endangered Religion
19/10/2017 9:00am - 22/12/2017 3:00pm
Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, University of Exeter
Mandaeans, sometimes called Sabians, practise an ancient and endangered religion. Conflict in the Middle East has forced them out of their homelands in Iraq and Iran in ever greater numbers. Although Mandaeans depend on their priests for preserving religious knowledge and performing complex rituals, fewer than 50 priests now remain worldwide. We have interviewed priests, recorded the key rituals and shot documentary films in the largest communities of Australia and Sweden.
Memory Metamorphosis
25/10/2017 9:00am - 30/11/2017 11:30am
NYU-London and the Centre for Palestine Studies, SOAS
When a people's history, culture and existence are being altered or erased, holding onto memories and passing them down can be an act of resistance. This exhibition explores and preserves Palestinian diasporic memory through art.
