This event is part of an Academic Series on the Historical and Political Context of the Israel-Hamas War.

The ongoing war between Israel and Hamas has brought immense suffering and anxiety to people in Israel, the Gaza Strip, the surrounding region, and all over the world. The conflict has come to college campuses and divided us.

Our role as an institution of higher education is to educate and foster informed and respectful dialogue on complex issues. The Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences and Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy have collaborated to create a series of events that will take place during the spring semester of 2024. These events are designed to illuminate the historical, political, cultural, and narrative background of the Israel-Hamas war. We have intentionally created forums that represent multiple perspectives, humbly recognizing that there are many viewpoints on this long-standing conflict. We invite all CMU students, faculty and staff to join us.

Please check the series website for more details about previous and upcoming events.
