Reflections on the Contemporary Middle East

Saieh Hall, Room 021

We invite you to join us for a discussion on the contemporary Middle East. Drawing upon a range of geopolitical perspectives on Iran, Israel/Palestine, Syria, Turkey, and Yemen, our panelists will reflect on issues such as the relationship between domestic and regional politics, the apparent deepening of sectarian affiliations, proxy war(s) and the legacy of US intervention in the region.

Presenters include:

  • Alireza Doostdar, Divinity
  • Hakan Karateke, NELC/CMES
  • John Mearsheimer, Political Science
  • Lisa Wedeen, Political Science & 3CT

Presentations will be followed by an audience Q&A.
