Pastoral in Palestine

In 2011 and again in 2013, Neil Hertz lived in Ramallah, in Palestine’s West Bank and taught at Al-Quds University in Abu Dis, just outside Jerusalem.  With “Pastoral in Palestine” he offers a personal take on life in the Occupied Territories and East Jerusalem, reporting on how people on both sides of the increasingly bizarre frontier have come to terms with what they refer to, hopelessly, as “The Situation.”

Neil Hertz taught literature at Cornell University and Johns Hopkins University until his retirement in 2005.  In addition to his pamphlet Pastoral in Palestine (2013) he is the author of The End of the Line (1985) and George Eliot’s Pulse (2003).  He lives in Ithaca, New York.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.  For further information, please contact the Centre for Comparative Literature at (416) 813-4041
