Middle East Outreach

I'm still for teaching the world on a shoestring, for sure.  But now I'm the Outreach Director for the Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies, so resources and support will have a distinctively Middle Eastern flavor.  I'll be adding to resources on our site in the coming weeks. 

And a good time for it!  We're all glued to events in Egypt and Tunisia and Bahrain and beyond. 

Have you been teaching the crucial role of Facebook, Twitter, and informal broadcasting in Egypt?    If so, you may be interested in this recent video from Cairo.  It's a response to international support (also conveyed by social media) in beautiful images and many different languages.  Enjoy!
