We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

About this event

Emerging Voices founder, Rose Levinson, Ph.D., is offering a three-part series on Palestine/Israel. Rose is adjunct professor emeritus, University of San Francisco, Jewish Studies and Social Justice Program. Her book, Death of a Holy Land, uses the work of four contemporary Israeli novelists to reflect upon a country in turmoil.

The series will be via Zoom at 7-8:30 p.m. BST. Please sign up to all three sessions if you would like to attend the full series.

DATES:

Thursday, June 16: Ancient History

Thursday, June 23: Modern History

Thursday, June 30: How can we talk about Israel?

Topics to be discussed include:

…an overview of the history of the Palestinians and the Jews

…major events in the creation of the State of Israel and ‘reasons’ there is no concomitant Palestinian nation; how other unrecognised nations illuminate the Palestinian experience.

…factors in the Jewish lived experience which make resolution elusive. Materials will come from Jacqueline Rose’s The Question of Zion which argues that Israeli treatment of Palestinians arises from an attempt to drive away the shame of past humiliations visited upon Jews; Brian Klug‘s writings on the use of the term ‘Zion’; Faisal Devji’s Muslim Zion: Pakistan as a Political Idea which considers similarities between the founding of these two nation-states.

This series is intended as a space to consider concepts. Levinson’s views on Israel are left-of-centre, and this course arises partly out of her desire to make some sense of an anguishing situation. Sign up to study, critically engage and think. There will be an opportunity to contribute your comments, photography, and artwork to the Emerging Voices webzine at the conclusion of the series.
