17.30, Tuesday 12 March, Keynes Hall, King’s College
co-hosted by Critical Theory & Practice Seminar Series and Demilitarise Cambridge

Ever been confused by the claim that the Israeli military is ‘the most moral’ in the world? Join us to hear Dr James Eastwood talk about his brilliant new book, ‘Ethics as a Weapon of War: Militarism and Morality in Israel’, which focuses on how the ideology of military ethics acts to entrench Israel’s settler-colonial project.

Speaker: James Eastwood is Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at Queen Mary University of London. His research to date has focussed on the relationship between ethics, violence, and militarism with a particular focus on the case of Israel. Alongside his first book published with Cambridge University Press, his work has also appeared in journals including the European Journal of International Relations, Security Dialogue, and Settler Colonial Studies.

Chair: Dr Mezna Qato is a Research Fellow in History of the Middle East at King’s College, Cambridge. She was co-editor of a special issue of Settler Colonial Studies on Palestine, and is completing a book on the history of education for Palestinians.
