Geographer Shaul E. Cohen at Kennedy Center lecture Oct. 29

A University of Oregon geography professor will discuss how land and other geographical elements have become major political tools in two specific conflicts in the world Wednesday, Oct. 29, at noon in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium on the Brigham Young University campus.

Shaul E. Cohen will give a lecture titled "Whither Jerusalem, and Northern Ireland, Too" about the Israeli-Palestinian and Northern Ireland conflicts as part of the David M. Kennedy Center's International Forum Series.

Cohen's work has focused on historical and cultural elements of political geography and ecology. Within that context, he has researched many elements of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with an emphasis on land, territory and environment.

Prior to joining the University of Oregon in 1996, Cohen was director of Middle East Studies at the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University from 1994-96. He was also a research fellow at the Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem from 1991–93.
