Friday, Sept. 21, 6:30 pm, (Koelbel 210) As violence in Syria continues unabated, the fate of the uprising and the future of the nation remain unclear. What are the characteristics of the Syrian uprising that make it different than the other Arab uprisings? What are the structural causes of the uprising and why has it thus far failed to unseat the Syrian regime? Join us to listen to Haytham Bahoora, Professor of Arabic, as he considers these questions in the broader context of the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt.
