Coffee and Conversation with Dr. Luke Yarbrough: Scholarship and Identity: Engaging “Other” Traditions

2014 Sam and Marilyn Fox Atlas Week

Wednesday, April 2
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
R.S.V.P. Required

Sponsored By: Political Round Table and Atlas Program Planning Committee

Dr. Luke Yarbrough from the history department will be talking about his experience in studying and living in the context of a society very different from the one he grew up in. He will refer to historical examples of individuals who've done the same, and to ask the audience to reflect on the challenges and concerns as well as the promise of academic study across traditional national, religious, and cultural boundaries. Hopefully we could make some progress toward defining and addressing those challenges. Dr. Yarbrough specializes in Middle Eastern history and has lived and worked in Egypt as a Fulbright Fellow.
