Three of the four events are free and open to the public, taking place at three different university campuses. The fourth talk requires reservations and an admission fee.
Ilan Pappe is Professor of History and Director of the European Center for Palestinian Studies at the University of Exeter. He is formerly Senior Lecturer of Middle Eastern History and the Department of Political Science at Haifa University.
