Politics of the Middle East and Media Bias: A Panel by COMPAS
Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar
The Coalition of Multicultural Public Administration Students (COMPAS), The Middle Eastern Studies Program, and Maxwell Executive Education invite you to join us for a panel discussion on the misunderstanding of current events in the Middle East created by biased media coverage.
Whether it's the reasons behind the "Arab rage" which resounded across the region in response to a video mocking the prophet Mohammad or Iran's intentions for developing nuclear weapons, the media often puts a spin on stories coming out of the Middle East. These stories frequently lead to negative stereotypes which perpetuate American misconceptions of the region as a whole. The purpose of this panel is to reexamine these current events from an unbiased perspective, to delve into the reasons behind media bias, and to address common misconceptions.
The panel will be led by highly regarded journalist and public speaker Rami Khouri who will be joined by Dr. Mehrzad Boroujerdi of the Middle Eastern Studies program and Master of Arts in International Relations candidate, Sari Dallal.
