Israeli Journalist Natasha Mozgovaya Headlines UCLA Event Focusing On Israeli Elections
The UCLA Younes & Soraya Nazarian Center for Israel Studies will sponsor “Israel in 3-D” on Sunday, March 10.
The “one-day university” explores contemporary issues in Israeli political, economic, and foreign affairs, as well as U.S. foreign policy toward Israel.
Presentations on Israeli music and art will include live musical performances.
The event offers two panel discussions and four short courses (two each in the morning and afternoon) free of charge.
There is a $36 fee to attend the luncheon and keynote speech by Israeli journalist Natasha Mozgovaya, who has written extensively for Ha’aretz, Israel’s leading newspaper.
Mozgovaya has been covering Israeli news since the late 1990s and will address the impact of the January elections on society in Israel.
“This is an excellent opportunity to share the knowledge, innovative research, and overall expertise of our UCLA Israel Studies faculty, plus a few guest speakers, on critical topics relating to Israel,” says Professor Arieh Saposnik, director of the Nazarian Center.
The goal of the event is to bring the off-campus community to the UCLA environment to learn about Israel in a way that goes beyond the headlines.
“Israel in 3-D” will be held from 9:30 a.m.. to 4:15 p.m. at the UCLA Faculty Center on campus; fee parking will be available in UCLA Lot 2.
