Voices of the Middle East and North Africa

Voices of the Middle East and North Africa – January 2, 2008

In this week’s program, we will hear a talk by Bard College Professor of Social Studies Joel Kovel, the author of Overcoming Zionism: Creating a Single Democratic State in Israel/Palestine. In an assault on academic freedom by organizations mobilized to suppress criticism of Israel’s policies, Professor Kovel has been targeted for challenging the historical Zionist narrative. http://www.joelkovel.org/joelkovel.html

Later in the program, we will bring you the third part of an interview about the history of modern arts in Iraq in which Dr. Zeina Zaatari speaks with Nada Shabout, Assistant Professor of Art History at the University of North Texas. http://montalvoarts.org/participants/nada_shabout/
