Biography

Seth Anziska is the Mohamed S. Farsi-Polonsky Lecturer in Jewish-Muslim Relations at UCL. His research and teaching focuses on Israeli and Palestinian society and culture, modern Middle Eastern history, and contemporary Arab and Jewish politics. He is the author of Preventing Palestine: A Political History from Camp David to Oslo (Princeton University Press, 2018), and his writing has appeared in The New York Times, Foreign Policy, and The New York Review of Books. Seth received his PhD in International and Global History from Columbia University, his M. Phil. in Modern Middle Eastern Studies from St. Antony’s College, Oxford, and his BA in history from Columbia University. He is a 2018-2019 Fulbright Scholar at the Norwegian Nobel Institute, and has held visiting positions at Dartmouth College, New York University, the London School of Economics, and the American University of Beirut.

Research Summary

Dr. Anziska’s research is focused on the international history of the Middle East in the 20th century, particularly Israel/Palestine, Lebanon, and US relations with the wider region. His first book, Preventing Palestine, examines the emergence of the 1978 Camp David Accords and the consequences of international diplomacy in circumscribing Palestinian self-determination. Dr. Anziska is also interested in archival practices and visual culture of the Middle East, as well as the legacy of Arab-Jewish encounters in Europe and the Levant. Current projects include an international history of the 1982 Lebanon War, which explores the possibility and limitations of historical research across national borders given the afterlife of political violence.
