Teach-In Roundtable: Sheikh Jarrah
May 19, 2021 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This panel seeks to provide a scholarly, historical perspective on the multiple factors that have led to the current events taking place in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah. Furthermore, this panel will speak not to intellectual abstractions, but will provide academic contexts to pragmatic concerns that journalists and readers should understand and consider when covering or reading about the current situation in Palestine today.
