Kathleen Christison, an internationally recognized expert on Palestinian-Israeli relations will be speaking on her recent visit to Gaza and the West Bank.
She is the author of three books on Palestine, including Perceptions of Palestine: Their Influence on U.S. Middle East Policy and The Wound of Dispossession: Telling the Palestinian Story.
“There is no shrewder observer of the American-Palestinian-Israeli triangle than￼Kathleen Christison,” said Donald Neff in the Journal of Palestine Studies. She has an acute and in-depth understanding of the Middle East, in particular, the history of the founding of the state of Israel in 1948 and the dispossession and displacement of indigenous Palestinian populations.
Christison was a political analyst for the CIA between 1963 and 1979 where, for more than 7 years, her work focused on the Middle East. Since her resignation from the CIA in 1979, she has dedicated herself to researching and writing about the realities of life in occupied Palestine. For many years, she was also a member of the National Book Critics and has lectured around the country and in Europe. She currently resides in Santa Fe, NM.
