Arab Summer, U.S. foreign policy topic for BYU lecture Sept. 28

Roxane Farmanfarmaian, visiting scholar at the Middle East Center at University of Utah and affiliated lecturer or modern Middle East studies at Cambridge University, will speak at Brigham Young University Wednesday, Sept. 28, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Her lecture will be titled “The Arab Summer: What it Means for the Arab World for U.S. Policy.”

She attended the International School of The Hague and subsequently received a degree in Middle East studies from Princeton University. She moved to Moscow, working as a reporter and witnessed the cracks that would eventually lead to the fall of Soviet communism. Returning to New York, she worked for several years in commercial magazines and as a freelancer.

In 2001, Farmanfarmaian arrived in England just as 9/11 occurred to obtain a master'd degree in international relations at Cambridge University, which led to the research grant she received to complete a doctorate in international studies from Cambridge University, where she was a Donner Scholar of Atlantic Relations and a member of New Hall College.

This lecture will be archived at kennedy.byu.edu/archive. For more information, contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652 or lee_simons@byu.edu.
