The second talk in the semester’s Faculty Lecture Series will include a discussion on the Arab Spring that will explore the arguably good and evil forces on both sides of the uprisings. The talk is hosted by NSU’s Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences.
“Good and Evil in the Arab Spring”
Faculty Lecture Series | Timothy Dixon, J.D., associate professor and coordinator of history/politics
Thursday, October 17, 2013
Alvin Sherman Library | Second Floor Gallery
About the Talk
This lecture will challenge the belief that the Arab Spring uprisings and associated changes represent good against the evil of the overthrown regimes. There are elements of evil among the forces for change and their allies, and elements of good and evil among the countries offering support for the regime changes. There are arguably some small sparks of good among the regime forces that we may overlook. Thus, this talk argues we should not view the events of the Arab Spring as entirely black or white.
