Israel in a Changing Middle East Lecture February 23

Mordechai Kedar will present “Israel in a Changing Middle East” at Meredith College on Thursday, Feb. 23, 2012. The lecture will be held at 7 p.m. in Jones Chapel.

Kedar is an authority in the field of Arab and Middle East Studies, with special research focus on Islam, Islamic Movements, and Popular Arab Culture. He is a professor of Arabic & Middle Eastern Studies, and the director of the Center for the Study of the Middle East and Islam (under formation) at Israel’s Bar Ilan University. He is also a Lt.-Col. (res), and a former branch head of IDF Military Intelligence.

As dramatic revolutions and political change sweep the Arab world, the Middle East is quickly moving toward pivotal intersections. Dr. Kedar will discuss how these changes may shape Israel, the region and the world. He will also examine the issue of why cultural differences between the Middle East and the West result in flawed assessments and mistaken policies.

This event is free and open to the public.
