Right in the Middle of the Middle East
Dr. Baher Ghosheh is Edinboro University's resident expert on the Middle East. Born and raised in Jerusalem and educated in the economic development and international relations on the Middle East, Dr. Ghosheh has taught geography and Middle Eastern studies at Edinboro since 1989. In a change to our normal "Tartan Talks" format, Dr. Ghosheh joins us via Zoom to discuss the history of the region and how the United States became involved in the 20th Century. He also discusses how the Arab Spring protests changed the landscape of social interaction and news media in the Middle East. Find out why it's crucial to understanding this oftentimes-chaotic region and what the ramifications are in the near future.
