Understanding the Middle East

On 03 Jun 2017

Film Screening and Symposium on Middle Eastern identity, history and context.

Overwhelmed as we are with dramatic information, made inescapable with 24 hour digital media, we look for some understanding of the Middle East; its history, current situations and the way forward. Philosophy, Art and Food - next to disciplines relating to politics, religion and history - offer insight at different levels.
