Israel & Palestine Symposium: ‘Divergent Ideological Frameworks, One Conflict'

Please note that this event is only open to University of Toronto Faculty and Students. TCards will be required upon entry.

A team of interdisciplinary undergraduate students have worked together to host a conference on evolving Israeli and Palestinian ideologies in the 21st Century, as an agent or reconciler of the ongoing conflict, entitled "Divergent Ideological Frameworks, One Conflict"

The conference will be jointly hosted by the Anne Tanenbaum Centre for Jewish Studies, the Institute of Islamic Studies at the UofT, the Department of Political Science, the Trudeau Centre for Peace, Conflict and Justice, and the Munk School of Global Affairs.

This event will feature various academic experts on the topic of Israel & Palestine, who will each bring their respective research to demonstrate how conflicting ideological lenses have added to the contention surrounding the almost 70 year dispute between the two peoples.

Our aims are to share diverse perspectives, experiences, knowledges, and understandings of the Israel- Palestine conflict to the greater academic community at the University of Toronto. The program hopes to simultaneously demonstrate the complexity of the Israel- Palestine conflict, while empowering students to use academia as a critical and objective bridge between peoples.

Registration is required for this event. For further information please contact Rachel Glowinsky
