Revolution in the Arab World: The Morning After

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Steve Negus, a reporter specializing on the Middle East, and Sumita Pahwa, a former adjunct professor, will be holding a discussion regarding the recent, historic changes in the Arab world.  The talk is being held from 2-4 on Tuesday in Davis. Unfortunately this is a fairly awkward time but this lecture sounds fantastic.

Negus will discuss “Rebels and Regime Change in Libya,” drawing on first-hand observations of events in Benghazi and Tripoli, from which he recently returned. He will share insight on Libya’s new rebel-led government and what a post-Qaddafi Libya may look like.
Pahwa’s piece of the program, titled “Islamists in Post-Revolution Egypt: Careful What You Wish For,” will focus on how the Muslim Brothers and Salafi movements have shifted gears after the revolution. She’ll discuss the role of religion in a democratic Egypt. <via Scope Online>

So if you got some time tomorrow, put down that Chaucer you’ve been slogging through and head on over to Davis.

Tuesday 2-4 @ Davis Auditorium
Free and open to the public
