Perhaps one of the more polarizing subjects in academia, the Israel-Palestine conflict is a difficult issue for teachers to teach, shrouded as it is in myths, calumnies, and mis-apprehensions. In this weekend-long program, FPRI’s Butcher History Institute offers diverse scholarly perspectives on the historical roots of the conflict and the possible solutions, while grappling with the complexities of teaching the subject.
