Khalidi returns to BU to discuss developments in the Middle East
BLOOMSBURG - Rashid Khalidi, author, professor and scholar at Columbia University, will lecture on "New Strategic Perspectives in the Middle East" at Bloomsburg University at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Carver Hall's Kenneth S. Gross Auditorium. Khalidi's talk is free and open to the public.
The lecture will focus on the changing dynamics in the Middle East in light of a possible nuclear accord between the West and Iran. Khalidi will give his perspective on the obstacles to an agreement and the regional implications if the agreement is forged. The areas affected if a deal breaks down or is negotiated are the ongoing civil war and proxy war in Syria, the Palestinian-Israeli arena and the strategic situation in the Gulf region. He previously spoke at BU two years ago, explaining the significance of Arab Spring, the revolutionary activity occurring throughout the region.
Khalidi, the Edward Said professor of modern Arab studies at Columbia, is a former president of the Middle East Studies Association. He was adviser to the Palestinian delegation during the Madrid and Washington Arab-Israeli peace negotiations in October 1991 and June 1993.
He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and serves on the national advisory committee of the U.S. Interreligious Committee for Peace in the Middle East. He has authored several books, including last year's "Brokers of Deceit: How the U.S. has Undermined Peace in the Middle East," more than 75 articles on Middle East history and politics and opinion pieces featured in the New York Times, Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and The Nation. The editor of the Journal of Palestinian Studies, Khalidi has been a regular guest on radio and television programs, including "All Things Considered," "The News Hour with Jim Lehrer" and "Nightline."
