Dear Faculty Member:
The Middle East is one of the most geopolitically important regions on the
planet. This has never been more true than right now. Burgeoning democracy
movements throughout the area, the recent war in Libya, the unstable situation
in Syria, the threat of war with Iran, and the ongoing occupation of Palestine
make the Middle East a fascinating area to learn more about.
On February 11th Barbara Petzen, Education director of the Middle East Policy
Council in Washington, DC, will be offering a full-day workshop entitled, "A
Taste of the Middle East: Perspectives on Geography, Culture, and Identity."
The workshop is designed for secondary school teachers, but is suitable for any
teacher who wants to learn more about this culturally rich area. This workshop
will give you a deeper understanding of some of the differing perspectives held
by people living there, and an in-depth look at some of the troubling issues
facing the region.
The workshop will be preceded by a Friday evening event which will focus on
Middle Eastern food and short film clips. Come prepared to eat and discuss!
The CU Center for Asian Studies and the Boulder-Nablus Sister City Project are
co-sponsoring and subsidizing this event.
Detailed information and a registration form are available at
