April 2019 Newsletter

Welcome to the April newsletter. Well, things certainly just as muddled and confused since the last newsletter – if not more so – and no end in sight. However, we still have a few universities that want their research and public lectures recorded and podcast, and as long as they want us, we are here to record and podcast.

Right, let’s start with one of our our regulars, the Royal Asiatic Society. Two very interesting contributions from them:

We have three talks from the Pears Institute for the Study of Anti-Semitism:

And a fabulous lecture from art historian T.J. Clark:

Ten years ago we recorded a conference on mental health in Palestine – at the time very controversial and disputed (you can listen to it here). As a follow-up, the Birkbeck Institute for Social Research has re-visited the topic and staged a second conference with the co-operation from CREHR (Centre for Researching and Embedding Human Rights), the UK/Palestine Mental Health Network and Friends of Birzeit University. It took place a while ago, and, after much careful checking, here it is:

And finally, a fascinating talk on demographics and population change – a topic much overlooked, but which most certainly will shape and determine our future:
