Amit Deutsch recently graduated from Berkeley with a degree in psychology. His interest in the mind and the effects of group mentalities began in high school when he started interviewing Holocaust survivors and publishing their stories. Being an Israeli-born American has helped him develop the multicultural perspective that fuels all of his social activism. In his college career, he founded and participated in numerous student groups, his latest being an organization that connects Berkeley students directly with activists in Israel.
This past summer, Amit went on a trip to the Balkans with both Jews and Palestinians as part of a fellowship that teaches conflict transformation and comparative conflict analysis. His talk will focus on the roles that narratives play in perpetuating both group and interpersonal conflicts and how we can come to see the difference between people as they appear in our narratives and people as they really are.
