Peace advocate to give presentation on recent travels to Holy Land

February 4, 2011

Morgan Bach, peace advocate and Israeli-Palestinian conflict researcher, will give a multimedia presentation “Roots Run Deep Here: Reflection on Non-Violent Resistance in Palestine,” at Loyola University New Orleans detailing her recent travels to Palestine and Israel. The lecture takes place Wednesday, Feb. 9, at 7 p.m. in Miller Hall, Room 114. Admission is free and open to the public. Middle Eastern refreshments will be provided.

Raised in Japan and India, Bach is the daughter of international school teachers. She attended high school in Seattle, Wash., and graduated from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Wash., with a degree in race and ethnic studies. While studying Arabic in Jordan, she decided to concentrate on Middle East Studies and undertake a scholastic examination of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

According to Bach, her recent trip to Palestine and Israel was a part of a personal project to connect New Orleans and Palestine. More info of her travels can be found on her website http://filisteenola.blogspot.com.

This event is sponsored by Loyola’s Middle East Peace Studies interdisciplinary program and the history department.
