Denison Lecture Series Speaker Discusses U.S. Role In Palestinian-Israeli Conflict
Posted: February 25, 2002
The role of U.S. foreign policy in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict will be the topic when Edmund "Ned" Hanauer visits Denison as the next speaker on the Denison Lecture Series. The all-college convocation is set for 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday (March 5) in Herrick Hall. An outspoken Jewish supporter of Palestinian rights and a critic of Israeli policy, Hanauer will discuss topics such as U.S. policy towards Palestine and Israel, the state of human rights in the region and approaches to a just Arab-Israeli peace. This event is free and open to the public.
Hanauer is the founder and director of Search for Justice and Equality in Palestine/Israel (SEARCH) and edits SEARCH's Palestine/Israel file. Before starting SEARCH in 1972, Hanauer taught political science, history, and international relations at Babson College as well as at the University of Maryland's European division. He has a bachelor's degree from Dartmouth College and a doctorate in political science from American University.
Hanauer has spoken twice to the Nieman Fellows in Journalism at Harvard and twice to the State Department's Open Forum of the Secretary of State. He has given numerous lectures at leading universities, and to Jewish, Christian, civic, educational and human rights groups. His address to the City Club of Cleveland was televised nationally by C-SPAN three times. His articles on the Israeli-Arab conflict have appeared in 30 major newspapers and he has been interviewed on National Public Radio.
SEARCH is a national, non-profit human rights organization that seeks a just Israeli-Palestinian peace based on the inalienable rights of both peoples. SEARCH believes that justice for Palestinians and security for Israeli Jews are interdependent and not mutually exclusive and urges Americans to work for a more even-handed U.S. policy, one that supports the rights of Palestinians as well as Israelis.
