The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of History continues its popular Middle East forum on Thursday, October 24. This monthly free-of-charge series, organized by the Middles East Project Fund, is designed for UNO students, faculty, staff and off-campus guests.
The forum takes place from noon -1 p.m. in the Milo Bail Student Center Council Room and is free and open to the public.
As always, guests are encouraged to bring lunch and questions, as Assistant Professor of Religious Studies Curtis Hutt moderates a panel of experts from UNO: Dr. Moshe Gershovich, professor of history and director of the Schwalb Center for Israel and Jewish studies; Dr. Ramazan Kilinc, assistant professor of Political Science; and Dr. Patrick McNamara, visiting professor of Political Science and International Affairs.
These experts will address current issues that relate to the region and place them in context and perspective. Topics expected to be discussed include the Muslim Brotherhood, possible reconciliation between Iran and the United States and the Yom Kippur War’s effects on the Middle East.
Future meetings are planned for Nov. 21, Jan 23, Feb. 20 and March 20.
For questions, please contact Dr. Moshe Gershovich at 402.554.3175 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
