Understanding the Modern Middle East, a workshop for educators

Monday, September 13, 2021 - 3:00pm to Friday, October 29, 2021 - 3:00pm

National Humanities Center

Announced by the University of Pittsburgh

Far too often, the Middle East appears as doubly alien: out of place and out of time. A century of popular culture caricatures, at least two centuries of Orientalist representations, and decades of American military interventions, have all fed into the notion of the Middle East as a turmoil-laden, sectarian, and tribal premodern region. In this course, we will go beyond these stereotypes to look at the historical forces that shaped the region across the twentieth century to understand the complexities of its peoples and societies.

After Afghanistan: Russia and the United States Pick up the Pieces

Online
Sponsored By: 
Harvard University's Davis Center For Russian and Eurasian Studies

Fyodor Lukyanov, one of Russia’s leading analysts of foreign affairs, believes the messy American withdrawal from Afghanistan indicates that the United States intends to focus more narrowly—and more strategically—on national interests worth defending. Join us for a conversation between Lukyanov and Alexandra Vacroux to hear how the Russians are interpreting the U.S. exit from Kabul and the opportunities it may create for Russia. Is the American withdrawal good for Russia? Could more contained American foreign policy goals allow for better U.S.-Russia bilateral relations?
