‘Islam and Democracy’ talk at 4 pm Monday
Profs. Heidi Sherman and Katia Levintova post this announcement that the first discussion in the “Islam and Democracy” series has been rescheduled to Monday (Feb. 28) from 4 to 5 p.m. in the University Union’s 1965 Room. “Much like the previous forum on the situation in the Middle East, we are hoping for an interesting (and well attended) discussion of one of the most fascinating topics in contemporary politics. Our Egyptian friends will come as well.”
