Ghada Karmi

Talk entitled ’60 Years of Damage: Israel and the Arab World since 1948′. Israel’s establishment in the Arab world sixty years ago impacted most immediately on the Palestinians. But what is often ignored is the extensive damage inflicted on the Arab frontline states and the Arab world in general. Lebanon especially has paid a heavy price for the imposition of Israel on its borders. Ghada Karmi’s new book ‘Married to Another Man: Israel’s dilemma in Palestine’ that deals with this aspect, will discuss the historical damage done to Lebanon and the Arab world by Israel, and how it has shaped the modern Middle East. Born in Jerusalem, Ghada Karmi grew up in England where she became a physician, academic and writer. Currently a research fellow and lecturer at the Institute of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Exeter, she is the author of the widely acclaimed memoir ‘In Search of Fatima’.
