Department of Humanities sponsors lecture, “Overcoming Zionism,” by Joel Kovel
(New Orleans)—Professor Joel Kovel of Bard College will speak on Monday, March 26, at 7:30 p.m., in Miller Hall, room 114, at Loyola University New Orleans, on the topic "Overcoming Zionism: Creating a Single Democratic State in Israel/Palestine."
Kovel's talk will be based on his new book of that title. In his book, he argues that Zionism and democracy are essentially incompatible and offers an account of Zionism that integrates psychological, political, cultural, economic, and ideological dimensions. He contends that a two-state solution concedes too much to regressive forces of nationalism, which is at the root of continued conflict.
Kovel is a professor at Bard College, in addition to being well-known as a writer and editor. His books include, White Racism, The Complete Guide to Therapy, The Age of Desire, History and Spirit, and The Enemy of Nature.
This event is sponsored by the Loyola Department of Humanities. For further information, please contact Prof. John Clark at (504) 865-2790 or firstname.lastname@example.org
