Lunch Conversation with Professor Lorenzo Veracini on Settler-Colonialism and the Study of Zionism: Erasure, Transfer and Assimilation

Francis Scott Key Hall, Room 2120
Tuesday, November 25, 2014 - 12:00 PM
Professor Lorenzo Veracini of Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne Australia will lead a discussion over lunch on Tuesday November 25 in Francis Scott Key Hall, Room 2120. Professor Veracini, who is also Queen Elizabeth II Fellow at the Swinburne Institute for Social Research, focuses his research on the comparative history of colonial systems and on settler colonialism in particular. He has authored Israel and Settler Society (2006) and Settler Colonialism: A Theoretical Overview (2010). He is also editor of the journal Settler Colonial Studies (Taylor & Francis).
 
Professor Veracini is in town to attend the annual MESA conference. He is one of the organizers of a session devoted to the ideological and political agendas articulated in the development of the Israeli artist-village of Ein Hod in place of the Palestinian farming village of Ayn Hawd. That process is the basis for a distinction between a colonialist project and a settler-colonial project.
 
The lunch is co-sponsored by The Joseph and Alma Gildenhorn Institute for Israel Studies.
