Event Details

Between Two Worlds: America and the Middle East

Political unrest continues to take violent form in many countries of the Middle East as everyday people fight for the freedom and justice that many Americans take for granted. The outcomes of these conflicts will forever alter the economic, political, and social landscape of the region and force America to renegotiate our relationship with this part of the world as the pace of globalization accelerates. The ND Humanities Council has gathered an extraordinary group of men and women journeying between America and the Middle East in the roles of journalist, marine, political exile, humanitarian aid worker, children's book author, immigrant, Islamic convert, poet, human rights advocate, comic book writer and more. Their stories of courage and compassion amid war and conflict will bring home the reality half a world away.  
CONVERSATION HOST:

Roxana Saberi, An American Journalist Taken Hostage in Iran

FEATURING:

Josh Rushing, Journalist and Marine Corps Veteran of the Iraq War

G. Willow Wilson, The Voice Behind the First Female Muslim Superhero

Tamim Ansary, A Children’s Book Writer from Afghanistan Transformed by 9/11

Roya Hakakian, A Political Exile Fighting for Human Rights in Iran 

Lahab Assef Al-Jundi, The Son of an Acclaimed Syrian Activist Finding His Own Legacy

Naomi Shihab Nye, A Wandering Poet Telling Palestine’s Hidden Stories
