A Lecture: Negotiating Arab-Israel Peace in Turbulent Times
You are invited to join us on Thursday, April 7, 2011, when Carnegie Mellon University History Professor, Dr. Laurie Zittrain Eisenberg, will introduce her latest book, Negotiating Arab-Israeli Peace: Patterns, Problems, Possibilities.
Professor Eisenberg examines the history of recurrent efforts to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict, focusing on peacemaking episodes from the Egyptian-Israeli peace of 1979 through the beginning of the Obama administration. She (and co-author Neil Caplan) consider how, when, and why the process does or does not work and explore what must change if diplomats are to achieve an enduring peace in the Middle East.
Professor Eisenberg is a historian of the modern Middle East, and her areas of research and publication include the Arab-Israeli conflict and peace process, and the interaction of multiple Middle East actors, particularly, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and the Palestinians.
Please join us at 8pm on Thursday, April 7, 2011 in the Giant Eagle Auditorium (Baker Hall A51) at Carnegie Mellon University. The Hillel Jewish University Center of Pittsburgh is co-sponsoring the event with the Arab Student Organization of CMU, the Muslim Student Association of CMU, and the Global Studies Department at CMU. Book signing and dessert reception to follow the lecture.
