Conflict and Peacemaking in Palestine/Israel

I was the Graduate Teaching Assistant for this undergraduate module in the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies. Primarily, I took the tutorials for this class, however I also wrote and delivered two lectures for this course. 

I also helped redesign this module, together with its conveyor, Sophie Richter-Devroe. This involved selecting a large body of new material for the reading list, as well as introducing a new topic on 'Politics and Aesthetics" - material for which was drawn directly from my PhD research.
