Message from our Acting Director, Jared McCormick (February 10, 2021)
To the larger Kevo Community,
We are physically back at the Kevorkian Center in a hybrid model this Spring 2021 semester and I write to welcome everyone back! We are continuing with both the Digital Forays and the Global Uprising series and hope that you join us!
This semester our faculty fellow Nasser Abourahme is teaching a graduate workshop that will help our students write and finish their thesis, a core requirment of our program. I am teaching "Digital Metholodies of the Middle East" which is a broad survey of artistic, academic, and activist production of digital material over the last 15 year in the Middle East - as well as workshops that introduce and problematize certain “Digital Humanities” tools and methods to students.
We are working with 15 students that will graduate with an MA in Near Eastern Studies and a number with various concentrations such as Langauge, Museum and International Relations.
Wishing you all the best starting the semester & hope to see you soon at some of our programing.
Please follow our Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn pages.
