Join George Mason University and the Arab Studies Institute for a panel discussing:
- How has the region been studied, researched, taught, and represented in the past three years?
- What have we learned about the societies, regional/international relations, and political-economic dynamics of Arab countries?
- What are the salient debates in the region about the region?
- Have counter-revolutionary forces triumphed?
- Is it time to do away with the secular/Islamist binary in favor of more nuanced understandings of political organization?
- Beyond politics, how have cultural elements/forms been affected, developed, and/or created?
