Join us on February 4
for conversation (5pm) and dinner (6pm)!
As we begin a month of learning about War and Justice, our guide will be Amir Marshi, a Palestinian PhD student in history and anthropology at the University of Michigan. Amir is an organizer, researcher, and writer hailing from the city of Nazareth. He graduated with a Master’s in Divinity from the University of Chicago. Marshi’s research centers on the political history of the Arab Church in Palestine-Syria, the North American Arab diaspora, and the colonial history of Christian Zionism. He has written on the impact of the Apartheid wall and colonial settlements in and around Jerusalem on the geopolitical and social fabric of Palestinians in Jerusalem, contributing as a researcher and author for the Jerusalem Story website. Amir co-founded the Edward Said Forum for Palestinian students in the Social Sciences, Humanities, and Arts Department at Tel Aviv University, as well as the Souq Stories project—a multi-sited photographic exhibition spotlighting historic Palestinian open markets.
This is an in-person event in the Richmond District of San Francisco. Join us for conversation, dinner, and deeper connection with one another. Online participation is also available.
