Shapiro Publishes in Palestine-Israel Journal, Will Present Paper at Middle East Dialogue 2016

Professor of History Barry Shapiro has published an article, “The Strange Career of Israeli ‘New Historian’ Benny Morris,” in the Jerusalem-based Palestine-Israel Journal. The article traces the odyssey from the political left to the political right of Professor Morris, who first achieved prominence in the 1980s for cutting-edge research that called into question a number of hallowed national myths about the founding of the State of Israel. Professor Shapiro will also be presenting a paper, “Apartheid Israel: Effective Propaganda or Counter-Productive Discourse?,” at the Policy Studies Organization’s Middle East Dialogue 2016 in Washington, D.C. in February.
