Using historical analysis and cross-cultural awareness, this conference will emphasize shifting geographies of power in the period between the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and the 2011 Arab Spring. The project is premised on the idea that “the frontiers of cultural understanding” are undergoing a transformation that can only be appreciated through a cross-cultural perspective and a multi-disciplinary methodology that is alert to the historical precedents behind current geopolitical and cultural conflicts.
