Michael Gizzi, an associate professor in Criminal Justice Sciences, will present “Seeing Israel Through Different Lenses: Multiple Narratives and the Challenges for Conflict-resolution, Co-existence, and Peacemaking” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 14, in Schroeder Hall, room 244.

Gizzi traveled to Israel for two weeks in February to help lay the groundwork for a possible study abroad program for Illinois State students to Israel and Palestine in 2016. In his exploration for sites and centers for students to visit, Gizzi journeyed to Nazareth, Galilee, the Golan Heights, Jaffa, Bethlehem, Jericho and Ramallah on the West Bank – all places impacted by the ongoing struggles between the two areas since the creation of Israel in 1948 in what was once Palestine.
