The Middle East is becoming more complex and confusing. Terror is spreading across the region and beyond the region to the rest of the world. Who’s against who? It’s hard to know. The Israeli Palestinian conflict looks further from being resolved than at any time in the past decades. Yet Israelis and Palestinians are still living next to each other and this reality will not change.

Gershon Baskin will discuss how the turmoil in the Middle East region impacts the chances of peace and relate to how the the Arab Peace Initiative is still a viable option. He will demonstrate how the Palestinians can be trusted to have a state of their own and share his opinions on the issue of Israel’s future as the democratic nation state of the Jewish people.

The talk will be part of the Jewish Masculinities course, facilitated by Professor Edward Merwin.

This course surveys Biblical, rabbinic, early modern, modern and postmodern sources to examine the manifold forms that Jewish masculinity has assumed throughout history. In the latter part of the course, we will analyze representations of Jewish men in film and television, with particular attention to the influence of the feminist movement, the effects of acculturation, and the differences between American and Israeli male stereotypes.

Gershon’s presentation will be held in the Seminar room (SEM) at Milton B. Asbell Center for Jewish Life – Dickinson College
