Co-authors Sa’ed Atshan and Katharina Galor will speak about their book project “The Moral Triangle: Germans, Israelis, Palestinians” at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, at Western Washington University’s Old Main Theatre.
In “The Moral Triangle,” Atshan and Galor draw on ethnographic fieldwork and interviews with Israelis, Palestinians, and Germans in Berlin to explore the asymmetric relationships in the context of official German policies, public discourse, and the private sphere.
Following the talk, the Western Gallery will host a reception at the Gallery to invite the speakers and audience to further engage in discussion while viewing the fall exhibition: There is a Mirror in My Heart: Reflections on a Righteous Grandfather by Sebastian Mendes; and Lost in Jüdischer Friedhof Weißensee by Robert Yerachmiel Sniderman.

“Dracula’s Daughters: A Family Comedy,” a comic travesty of the classic horror tale written by Sean Abley and directed by Sean Walbeck, in which “Dracula” is overtaken by a romance-driven audience member who bends the tale into a 1950’s sitcom, is staged by Whatcom Community College students at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 21-23, at Whatcom Community College’s Heiner Theatre, 237 W. Kellogg Road. Tickets are available at the door for $3.
