We would like to introduce to you the fifth online lecture of Mada’s series of lectures called “Politics in the Time of Corona.” This lecture, titled “The Deal of the Century in the Post-Colonial Period,” was presented by Prof. Ilan Pappé, Director of the European Center for Palestine Studies. It was the first lecture in the series to be held at Mada’s office in Haifa since the beginning of the Coronavirus crisis. Areen Hawari, the coordinator of the PhD student support program at Mada, introduced and welcomed Prof. Pappé, emphasizing that it is not a coincidence that Mada is hosting Professor Pappé in the week in which we are commemorating the Nakba.  Prof. Pappé has written extensively about Palestinian history and about the Nakba, most notably in his seminal work The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.
