Spring 2022: Middle Eastern Culture and Society

The Middle East can seem so far from daily life in Kansas. The information we receive is often through images in the media that become stereotypes generalized to all people of the region – terrorists, fundamentalists, women who suffer gender inequality. Just as we in Kansas are frequently called upon to defend our state’s diversity and rich culture, so too the Middle East is a diverse region with multiple histories, cultures, and peoples of varied backgrounds. This series moves beyond stereotypes to delve into the complexities of the region’s people and cultures.
