Historian Benny Morris will deliver a two-part lecture, “One State/Two States and Resolution of the Israel-Palestine Conflict,” on Monday, October 5 and Monday October 12, with both sessions beginning at 6 p.m. and held at New York University’s Jurow Lecture Hall in Silver Center (100 Washington Square East at Washington Place). The event is hosted by NYU’s Taub Center for Israel Studies.
Both sessions are free and open to the public. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 212.998.8981. Space is limited. Subways: A, B, C, D, E, F, V (West 4th Street); 6 (Astor Place); R, W (8th Street).

One State/Two States is the title of the most recent book by Morris, a professor at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. The lecture will examine the one-state and two-state solutions proposed over the decades to the Zionist-Palestinian conflict, looking at the trajectories of Palestinian and Zionist political aims since the dawn of the two national movements.
The Taub Center was established with a gift from the Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation. The gift supports an endowed professorship and two graduate fellowships in Israel Studies, and funds lectures, seminars, scholarly colloquia at the Center, and other special programs for students, faculty, and the community. In addition to offering its own programming, the Taub Center works closely with NYU’s departments to create cross-disciplinary programming, serving to broaden NYU’s offerings in Judaic and Middle Eastern studies.
