Middle Eastern Studies Program Presents: "Has the "Arab Spring" Failed to Bring Democracy and Women's Rights?" by Larbi Touaf

This discussion will address the current political situation in the Arab world, three years after the start of the uprisings. In particular, Professor Touafwill be focusing on the major concerns of women’s rights and democracy advocates. Concerns include the alarming emergence of fundamentalist governments whose discourse on women and civil liberties appears to be regressive.

LarbiTouafis an Associate Professor of English and former Chair of the English department at Mohammed I University Oujda, Morocco. Dr. Touafwas fellow at the Maxwell School in 2011 and is now a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at SUNY Cortland.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
