Dr Sheila Katz presents her book 'Connecting with the Enemy: A Century of Palestinian-Israeli Joint Non-Violence' - 29 April 2017

Dr. Katz is a Professor of Middle East History and Contemplative Studies in the multi-disciplinary Liberal Arts Department at Berklee College of Music in Boston where she teaches 21st century musicians in courses that include Palestinian-Israeli Relations, crosscultural history and practice of mindfulness meditation, and global
perspectives on music and social change.

Katz's teaching emerges out of a curiosity about our interconnection with each other and all life, as well as the sources of conflict and inequality that divide us. She continually learns from her students who hail from over one hundred countries. Her extensive travels inform her teaching through encounters with the breathtaking beauty and heartwrenching hardship in Ethiopia, Australia, Japan, Laos, Thailand, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Mexico, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Galapagos, Peru, and Canada.

Her students study history in ways that raise questions we face now, and explore contradictory realities, for example, how to take compassionate action despite our passions, hatreds, and delusions, and to navigate both our differences and our interconnection.
