Elon to host event about conflict in the Middle East

"Contextualizing the Conflict: Conversations about the Middle East" will feature more than 20 Elon faculty experts.

More than 20 Elon faculty with expertise in a range of disciplines will facilitate a set of discussions around the unfolding events in the Middle East on Wednesday, Oct. 18, from 12:15 – 1:45 p.m. in McKinnon Hall.

This event comes as a response to the campus’s urgent need for education and dialogue during the ongoing conflict in Israel and Palestine. Elon faculty will host individual table discussions intended to help members of our campus community develop some understanding of and context for these troubling events in the Middle East. Each table will be dedicated to one topic or question that emerges out of a faculty member’s area of expertise.

Open to students, faculty and staff, the event is being organized by Elon’s Council on Civic Engagement, the International and Global Studies program and the Elon Center for the Study of Religion, Culture, and Society.
