This week has been one of meetings. Not the boring kind held in conference rooms, but the engaging kind where risk and exploration run head long into new experiences and friends. Recently for me, this has included the beaches of Tel Aviv, Old Jaffa, the Ministry of the Interior Visa lady, and my new co-workers/ collaborators/ friends- the PICR lab at IDC. This lab, which focuses on the psychology of inter-group conflict and reconciliation, is comprised of about 25 researchers dedicated to good research applicable to social change and conflict resolution. It was quite an experience meeting 25 people that that spoke my academic language and my notebook is now filled with thoughts on Israel as well as research ideas. This is an exceptionally good feeling. I very much look forward to getting started.
