February 8: Israeli-Palestinian Conflict as Reflected in Propaganda Images

The long, drawn-out Ethnopolitical conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians has long been waged through a war of words and images. In an illustrated lecture, Professor Angus Kress Gillespie of Rutgers University reviews how the battle of propaganda has been played out. Both sides have tried to implant the most beneficial images into western media in order to win over western minds.

This lecture is part of the Asch series on Conflict and Visual Culture.
