    A book signing session is scheduled at the end of the lecture.

Prof. Pappé was born in Haifa to German-Jewish parents who had fled Nazi persecution in the 1930s. He graduated from the Hebrew University in 1978, and obtained his D.Phil. from the University of Oxford in 1984. He was the Academic Director of the Research Institute for Peace at Givat Haviva from 1993 to 2000, and is currently teaching at the University of Exeter.

His early books dealt with Israeli policy in 1948, a subject he has returned to in his latest book, “The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine”. His “A History of Modern Palestine” covers the last two hundred years and focuses on cultural and social issues. His “The Modern Middle East” is a textbook that brings to the fore the social and cultural developments in the region in the last century. “The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine” book will be available at the lectures for sale at a special price for fund raising.
