Time: 5:30 PM to 7 PM

Sponsored By: The Middle East Center, the Humanities Center and the Jewish Studies Program

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the 1967 war, during which
Israel conquered the West Bank. Professor Shafir’s talk will address two
key questions about Israel’s continuing control of the West Bank: “Is the
presence of Israel’s military and settlers an occupation?” and “Is the Israeli
settlement enterprise reversible?”

GERSHON SHAFIR is Distinguished Professor in the Department of Sociology at the
University of California, San Diego. He has served as President of the Association
for Israel Studies, and is the author or editor of ten books. His latest book is A Half
Century of Occupation: Israel, Palestine and the World’s Most Intractable Conflict.
