Other Events Next Week

Arabic students may find of interest two other events next week, both of which can be attended for extra credit:

1) A reading from the Terrorists in Love: The Real Lives of Islamic Radicals by Ken Ballen.

Where: Powell’s City of Books, 1005 W Burnside

When: Wednesday, October 19th, 7:30 pm

From the website description:

In the world of Ken Ballen’s Terrorists in Love (Free Press), a boy’s dreams dictate the behavior of warriors in battle, a young couple’s only release from forbidden love is death, and religious extremism, blind hatred, and endemic corruption combine to form a lethal ideology that can hijack a man’s life forever. A former federal prosecutor and congressional investigator, Ballen offers an intimate and enlightening window into the heart of Islamic fundamentalism, providing a glimpse into the lives, loves, frustrations, and methods of those whose mission it is to destroy us.

2) Rami Khouri on Diplomatic Stalemate and Democratic Revolts: Making Sense of a Middle East in Transit

Where: Westminster Presbyterian Church, 1624 Northeast Hancock Street

When: Thursday, October 20, 2011, reception & co-sponsor exhibits from 6:00pm; presentation at 7:30pm

From the website description:

Rami George Khouri is a Palestinian-Jordanian and US citizen whose family resides in Beirut, Amman, and Nazareth. He is the Director of the Issam Fares Institute of Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut as well as editor-at-large of the Beirut-based Daily Star newspaper. He is an internationally syndicated political columnist and author. Rami was a visiting scholar at Stanford University in October 2006, and in November 2006, he was the co-recipient of the Pax Christi International Peace Award for his efforts to bring peace and reconciliation to the Middle East.

Students who wish to obtain extra credit can write about these events in accordance with the extra credit guidelines.
