Penny Johnson

Burden of Beasts

A donkey arrested by the Israeli police; a hyena stoned to death on the side of a West Bank road. In Companions in Conflict, Penny Johnson, a co-founder of the Institute of Women’s Studies at Birzeit University, examines the intertwined lives and fates of animals and humans in the fragile land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. Johnson joins us to discuss her surprising investigation into the absurdities of the Occupied Territories.
