The School of Political, Social and International Studies is hosting an informal discussion with Dr. Anat Matar, a senior lecturer in philosophy at Tel Aviv University. Dr Matar works on the philosophy of the 20th century, with a special research interest in early analytic philosophy and post-structuralist philosophy. The focus of this discussion will be to give some insight into the Palestine/Israel conflict, from the perspective of an Israeli academic who has opposed Israeli policy for many years.
Anat has been active in Israeli human rights and civil society, e.g. in the refusal movement. She is Chair of the Israeli Action Committee for the Palestinian Prisoners. She co-edited a collection of essays written by prisoners, ex-prisoners, political activists and academics from across the political spectrum in a book published by Pluto Press in 2011: Threat: Palestinian Political Prisoners in Israel.
