The Kevorkian Center and the Department of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies are pleased to announce a new special monthly event: "The Middle East Commons: An informal space to discuss current events." On the first Monday of every month, an informal gathering open to the NYU community will be led by one of our faculty members.
We hope by creating this space, we will have more nuanced and a deeper understanding about things occurring in the Middle East and its ramifications on our communities or vice versa.
Join us for the second installment of this new event Monday, March 2. Professor Asli Igsiz will lead "Predicaments of the Kurds in Turkey," a discussion of Turkish government and its policies linked to the question of Kurdish nationalism.
