New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study will host journalist Amira Hass for a reading and discussion on Tues., April 19, 6:30-8 p.m., at the school’s Jerry H. Labowitz Theatre for the Performing Arts (1 Washington Place [at Broadway]).
Hass, who joined Haaretz in 1989 and has served as its correspondent for the West Bank and Gaza since 1993, has authored and edited several books, including: Drinking the Sea at Gaza: Days and Nights in a Land under Siege; Reporting from Ramallah: An Israeli Journalist in an Occupied Land; and Diary of Bergen-Belsen: 1944–1945.
Hass comes to Gallatin through its Global-Faculty-in-Residence program. The evening is part of the Second Annual Gallatin Global Writers—an event series highlighting contemporary international authors and the diverse literary traditions and cultures from which their writing arises.
Hass’s presentation will focus on writing as social action; she will be introduced by Gallatin Professor Hannah Gurman, whose published works include The Dissent Papers: The Voices of Diplomats in the Cold War and Beyond and Hearts and Minds: A People’s History of Counterinsurgency, an edited volume.
The event is free and open to the public; an RSVP is required on the event page. For more information, please call 212.992.7762.
