The Dartmouth Dialogue Project's special topic series, Middle East Dialogues, encompasses courses and events related to timely challenging topics. Watch the latest webinars of the series here!

Dartmouth's interdisciplinary programs in Jewish Studies and Middle Eastern Studies have a longstanding commitment to fostering dialogue, community, and joint academic inquiry. Building on this decades-long partnership and recent campus forums on the current conflict, the Middle East Dialogues foster learning and an open exchange of ideas to bridge what can appear to be an impenetrable divide.

The Middle East Dialogues represent the Dialogue Project's first special topic series, encompassing courses and events related to timely challenging topics. We hope to offer a new series each year or every other year, depending in part on current events. 

This winter, as part of the Politics of Israel and Palestine course taught by Ezzedine Fishere and in collaboration with the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, a webinar series features experts and former officials in discussion of various aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
