For the Thursday June 7th Palestine Book Awards talk Laila Parsons unfortunately has had to cancel. We are very pleased to confirm however that we will instead hear from Paul Kelemen, author of 'The British Left and Zionism: History of a Divorce' (Manchester University Press).
Kelemen will talk about the embrace of Zionism by most of the British left from the 1930s on, followed by a process of progressive estrangement as the realities of Israeli settler colonialism became clear.
Kelemen has written and analysed the current false antisemitism campaign inside the Labour Party and will include this subject on his talk.
Paul Kelemen is a Lecturer at the University of Manchester and a member of Sheffield PSC.
