Perhaps there is no region of the world about which Americans know so much, yet so little than the countries of the Arabian Peninsula.
Our Fall Lecture Series will feature four presentations about four distinctly different Middle Eastern nations.
Learn why Oman is on many “safest countries to visit” lists, how Qatar is coping with the blockade instituted by its neighbors, what the loosening of long-standing cultural laws means for Saudi Arabia, and if there is any hope for an end to the war in Yemen.
What happens in this part of the world impacts us. Let’s be informed global citizens.
