“Navigating Civil Dialogue in the Context of the War in the Middle East” will be held Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 10:30 a.m. ET via Zoom.
The professors—Tarek El-Ariss, James Wright Professor and chair of Middle Eastern Studies, and Susannah Heschel, Eli M. Black Distinguished Professor and chair of Jewish Studies—will share insights and relate details about the ways they have sought to educate and listen to students in the wake of the Oct. 7 Hamas attacks in Israel and the subsequent war in Gaza. The pair recently discussed their approach to these issues in an interview with NPR.
Vice Chancellor, Provost and Chief Academic Officer Gretchen Ritter will offer opening remarks. Margaret Talev, Kramer Director of the Syracuse University Institute for Democracy, Journalism and Citizenship, will serve as moderator.
The event, sponsored by the Office of Academic Affairs, is open to the University community. A Q&A session will follow the discussion, which can be accessed via Zoom on Nov. 28 at 10:30 a.m.
