Kenneth S. Stern in Conversation with Indira Naidoo-Harris

November 19th at 7:30 P.M.

JSpaceCanada and New Jewish Press present the Canadian Launch of Kenneth S. Stern’s newest book: The Conflict Over the Conflict: The Israel/Palestine Campus Debate. Stern’s book chronicles the divisive and toxic nature of the Israel-Palestine debate on today’s college and university campuses. The Conflict Over the Conflict examines attempts from each 'side' to censor the other rather than engaging with competing narratives or challenging ideas. According to Stern, the campus is the best place to navigate Israel-Palestine discourse and help future generations engage more meaningfully around this important topic. The Conflict over the Conflict shows how this is possible.

Join us on November 19th at 7:30pm for this timely event which serves as the plenary program for JSpaceCanada’s 2020 Annual General Meeting Webinar Series. A moderated discussion facilitated by Indira Naidoo-Harris will be followed by a Q&A period. 

University of Toronto Press has graciously provided a discount code you can use to purchase the book. Using their website, apply the code STERN2020 upon checking out and receive a discounted price.
