Midcoast Senior College presents a free talk in its Summer Wisdom Series, “New Wine in Old Bottles—Conflict or Peace in the Middle East: The Gaza War” with Kathleen Howard Sutherland. The October 7th Hamas attack on Israel climaxed a 75-year-plus conflict between Israelis and Palestinians over the question of the land of Palestine: Whose land is it? Palestinians’, Israelis’, or both? In this presentation we explore the historical basis for this conflict, as well as the colonial legacy, and the social, political, and religious issues involved. Where do we go from here? Kathleen Howard Sutherland is Associate Professor of Political Science and Women’s Studies Emerita at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. She was born and spent 35 years in Egypt researching and teaching at the American University at Cairo, was a Fulbright Scholar in Morocco, and has taught courses on the Middle East and Africa at OLLI in Portland since 2005. She and her husband, John, reside in Portland. Free and open to the public! Sponsored by Thornton Oaks in Brunswick.
