Conflict and Resistance in the Middle East

Conflict and Resistance in the Middle East is a reading, film and lecture series focused on life during conflict in the Middle East. The series will run from September 2011 - April 2012 and includes five book discussions, five films, and five lectures including several by internationally recognized authors. It focuses on two separate regions with heavy American involvement— Iraq during the fall semester, followed by Palestine in the spring semester. The books selected are a mixture of fiction and non-fiction.

All events are free and open to the public. Participants are invited to read each book and then join the discussions facilitated by faculty.
