Middle East Teach-In Series

by Bonnie Rose Schulman, Managing Editor, Council on Middle East Studies

The Council on Middle East Studies and the Arab Students Association at Yale, along with the support of many other groups, are holding a Middle East Teach-In Series for the spring semester. From Morocco to Iran, the regions of the Middle East and North Africa are experiencing a tremendous wave of political and economic unrest. The past few months have seen governments overturned, dictators unseated, and political activists energized. Unfortunately, this political optimism has also resulted in the deaths of many who agitated for peaceful change across the Arab world and elsewhere. As a whole, our series aims to educate the Yale and New Haven communities about the crucial events currently taking place across the Middle East and North Africa. The series also provides a forum for scholars, students, and community members to engage in a dialogue about these topics. Each weekly session focuses on a different country or region, such as Bahrain and the Gulf Monarchies, Egypt, Libya, Sudan, and Syria, and includes a lecture followed by a discussion with the audience.
