Event Description:
The South, Southeast and West Asia Outreach Program (SSEWA) at CU Center for Asian Studies is thrilled to announce the third of a four-part workshop series, “The History and Culture of the Middle East” for teachers and the general public. The next workshop will be held on Saturday Sept. 22, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wolf Law Building, Room 305, preceded by an introductory evening talk on Friday, Sept. 21 starting at 6:30 p.m. in Koelbel 210.

The workshop,"Arab Spring: The Middle East Awakens” will give a deeper understanding of the exciting events taking place there, and an in-depth look at some of the troubling issues facing the region. From Tunisia to Egypt to Libya to Syria and the Gulf states, you will gain an understanding of what brought these changes about, and the possibilities for the future. Our workshop presenter is Nabil Echchaibi, assistant professor, School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and Associate Director of the Center for Media, Religion, and Culture at the University of Colorado Boulder. After his presentation a curriculum specialist will offer teaching materials and tips to middle & high school teachers. It's suitable not only for those actively teaching about the Middle East, but for anyone interested in learning more about this significant region of the world.

The day-long workshop will be preceded by an introductory Friday evening talk presented by Haytham Bahoora, assistant professor of Arabic, CU-Boulder. His talk, "Syria and the Arab Uprisings," will compare the situation in Syria with the uprisings that took place in Tunisia and Egypt. This talk is FREE and open to everyone.
