Dear members of the MIT community,

I hope you’ll join us next Thursday for the last of our spring Dialogues Across Difference. This event will feature two scholars from Dartmouth in conversation with each other and the MIT community about their distinctive approach for talking about the Middle East war with people who hold sharply different views.

Dialogues Across Difference: A Model for Discussing Conflict and War in the Middle East (register)

Speakers: Susannah Heschel, chair of the Jewish Studies Program, and Ezzedine Fishere, senior lecturer in the Department of Jewish Studies and Middle Eastern Studies

Moderated Q&A with Vice President for Equity and Inclusion Karl Reid

Thursday, May 9, 4:00–5:00 p.m. ET
Room 10-250
Reception follows

Registration and MIT ID are required for entry. For accessibility accommodations, please contact iceo@mit.edu.

As President Kornbluth has emphasized, attendance at these or any other campus talks does not mean that you endorse the speakers' views or past statements. To make space for everyone to engage thoughtfully with our speakers and each other, we will ask attendees not to photograph, video, or record the audience.

I hope you will join me for this community conversation.
