Sa’ed Atshan and Katharina Galor – The Moral Triangle: Germans, Israelis & Palestinians in Berlin

Book Talk
7:00 pm CET

In this talk Dr. Sa’ed Atshan and Dr. Katharina Galor  will be discussing their recent book: The Moral Triangle: Germans, Israelis and Palestinians.

Berlin is home to Europe’s largest Palestinian diaspora community and one of the world’s largest Israeli diaspora communities. Germany’s guilt about the Nazi Holocaust has led to a public disavowal of anti-Semitism and strong support for the Israeli state. Meanwhile, Palestinians in Berlin report experiencing increasing levels of racism and Islamophobia.

Dr. Atshan and Dr. Galor explore these asymmetric relationships in the context of official German policies, public discourse and the private sphere.

Dr. Sa’ed Atshan is an Assistant Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies at Swarthmore College. He is spending the 2020-2021 academic year as a Visiting Professor of Anthropology and Visiting Scholar in Middle Eastern Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

Dr. Katharina Galor is the Hirschfeld Associate Professor in Judaic Studies and Urban Studies at Brown University. She specializes in the visual and material culture of Israel/Palestine.

This talk is part of the Global Histories of Migration Annual Lecture Series and funded by the Mellon Consortium of Forced Migration and Displacement.
