Public Lecture: «Palestinian doctors in the mandate period: A social history of relationships»


This lecture by Prof. Liat Kozma will explore how the Palestinian medical profession evolved within a complex web of relationships: within the Palestinian elite and an emerging middle class, between urban Palestinian society and its hinterland, between this professional group and the British colonial administration, and between Palestinian medical practitioners and their Jewish counterparts. In the absence of a pre-state infrastructure, the professions development depended on regional, national, and localized networks.
