All community members are invited to attend a presentation by guest speaker and Visiting Scholar from the Department of Anthropology at Harvard University, Dr. Sami Hermez. His presentation, “Syria in the Arab Revolutions: Two Years On,” will take place in the auditorium of the Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Richland Campus on Thursday, November 7th, at 11am.
Dr. Hermez, will focus on the transformation of the Syrian uprisings over the last two years and provide an analysis of both the geopolitical and grassroots forces. His talk will pose such questions as: how can we begin to understand the conflict in Syria; who are the different actors on the ground; and what positions might we consider taking in this country?
Previous to being a Visiting Scholar at Harvard University, Dr. Hermez held posts as a Visiting Professor of Contemporary International Issues at the University of Pittsburgh, a Visiting Professor of Anthropology at Mt. Holyoke College, and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre for Lebanese Studies, St. Antony’s College, Oxford University. He obtained his doctorate degree in January 2011 from the Department of Anthropology at Princeton University, where his research was with former militia fighters and current political activists, and dealt with questions of the anticipation of war in everyday life in Lebanon. His research is concerned with political violence, social movements, the state, memory, security and human rights in the Arab World. He has also worked in various organizations, among them, the US Peace Corps, Human Rights Watch, and the United Nations Development Program.
This opportunity has been made possible by the efforts of the Global Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh.
