Ethan Bronner on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
On Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 5pm at the BU Hillel House, Ethan Bronner delivered the 2013 Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Lecture on the journalistic challenges of covering the Middle East conflict. Mr. Bronner, who served as the Jerusalem bureau chief for The New York Times from 2008 to 2012, spoke about his years on the job, especially the challenges of covering two such competing narratives. He mixed personal anecdote with policy analysis to bring the audience behind the scenes of being a foreign correspondent.
The Consulate General of Israel to New England was represented by Acting Consul General Nudelman-Perl. The event was part of International Education Week, a university-wide celebration of BU’s global engagement.
The speaker was introduced by Dean CAS, Prof. Virginia Sapiro.
After the lecture, Mr. Bronner hosted a discussion of his work and the situation in Israel and Palestine.
The Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Lecture series has been made possible by the generous support of Mr. Jonathan Krivine (BA English).
