The Middle East: It is not as Complicated as You Think – A One Geographic Region First Friday Presentation
You can spend an entire life studying the Middle East (or any region) and still not truly understand all its complexities and nuances. However, there are also ways to understand a place and its history in simpler terms that can still reveal a great deal. In this one-hour session we will try to imagine what the world might look like to those that live in the Middle East by using a single lens. Although that lens can only tell part of the story, it will help illuminate some of the behaviors, attitudes, and thinking we can observe in the region’s past and present.
Presented by Dr. William Heineman
This Presentation is free and open to faculty, staff and students.
For International Studies students attending this presentation will count for 2 points towards Global Scholars.
