A lecture by Philip Khoury, Ford International Professor of History and Associate Provost at MIT.

Experts and non-experts alike were surprised by the Arab Spring's eruption five years ago. How can we explain the origins of the Arab Spring and the way it has unfolded? And is the Arab World as we know it today dying or is it being reborn?

Philip S. Khoury, Ford International Professor of History and Associate Provost at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will draw on his unique knowledge of Middle Eastern politics and history to discuss the Arab Spring. He will delve into the economic pressures, demographics, and rivalries that led to this event, and will discuss its potential long-term ramifications. This talk will be followed by a short question and answer session.

Event Pricing: $30 for Club Members, $50 for non-members, and free for Club Patrons. Members can register three non-member guests at $50 each.
