Professor Diana B. Greenwald (City College of New York) will discuss recent events in the West Bank in the Post-Oslo Era.

Diana B. Greenwald's research focuses on the politics of the Middle East, nationalism, conflict, and state-building. Her current book manuscript, Mayors in the Middle: Indirect Rule and Local Government in Occupied Palestine, under contract with Columbia University Press examines Palestinian local politics under Israeli occupation. This project draws on interviews with municipal leaders and local data on policing, taxing, and spending collected in the West Bank between 2014 to 2019. Greenwald's research has been published in PS: Political Science & Politics and is forthcoming in Middle East Law and Governance and Civil Wars. Her writing has also appeared in The National Interest, The Washington Post's Monkey Cage, +972 Magazine, and Foreign Policy
