That program, which starts at 7 p.m., will be led and moderated by Jeremy Pressman, Associate Professor of Political Science and Director of Middle East Studies at UConn. In addition to Prof. Landau, the panel will include Adam Antar ,a recent graduate of the UConn International Studies MA program. Adam is the founder of UConn Students for Justice in Palestine.
