Ghassan Hage’s letter responding to an invitation to give the keynote at the Anthropological Association of Israel conference and the president’s reply

I had initially asked the president of the Israeli Anthropological Association who invited me, Nir Avieli, if he wanted his invitation published. As I didn’t get an initial response i assumed he didn’t. But he has sent me his considered response to my reply. So here they are both for the records. As you can see both my response and Nir’s are polite and even cordial despite the differences, and if people want to comment, I’d rather if people keep the same tone of exchange.–Ghassan Hage
