From South Africa’s transition from apartheid to democracy to the seemingly intractable conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, SFU sociologist Heribert Adam has spent his career immersed in studying some of the most volatile political situations on the planet. He is being honoured for his contribution to understanding conflict in ethnically divided societies with the 2008 Sterling Prize in support of controversy. His book Seeking Mandela: Peacemaking between Israelis and Palestinians is co-authored with UBC’s Kogila Moodley. The award will be presented at SFU’s Wosk Centre for Dialogue, 7 pm, Oct. 15. His lecture, "Peacemaking in Divided Societies: South Africa, Israel/Palestine, Canada," is followed by a reception. Reservations: 778.782.5100.
