Allen participates in faculty fellowship in Israel

Darren Allen

Darren Allen, associate professor in the College of Arts and Sciences, participated in an intensive faculty fellowship in Israel, May 26–June 7.

Twenty-three academics from around the United States were selected for this fully funded program coordinated by the Jewish National Fund (JNF) and Media Watch International. Faculty hailed from Cornell University, The Ohio State University, University of California at Davis, and Arizona State University, among others.

Participants met with professionals and experts involved in government, industry, education, media and other sectors to understand the many aspects of Israel’s evolving national and international policies and brand as a ‘start-up nation.’ Participants also studied Israel’s success in water innovation and how the country addresses regional and global challenges. Allen met with academic counterparts and spoke about some of our Dialogues projects related to justice and civic life at the Hebrew University, The Technion, Tel Hai College, Ben Gurion University, Sapir College, and The Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya.

Over the course of the fellowship, Allen met Shulamit Almog, distinguished professor, University of Haifa; noted Israeli/Palestinian negotiator, Shifra Sagy; Khaled Abu Toameh, Israeli Arab journalist and documentary filmmaker, Ibtisam Mahameed, Israeli Arab women’s rights activist and co-creator of the Global Oneness Project The group visiting the Golan Heights on the Israeli border with Syria.

Though Allen has been to Tel Aviv previously, this was his first time exploring the entire country and called it “transformative.”
