From St. Norbert College, April 8, 2015
by Erich Wegenke,, 920-403-3089

Micheline Ishay, professor of human rights and international studies at the University of Denver, will present a lecture titled "Sectarianism in the Middle East" on Wednesday, April 22, as part of the Great Decisions lecture series. Ishay will speak about how sectarianism--the politicization of ethnic and religious identities--has influenced the conflicts in the Middle East, how governments have manipulated sectarian differences and how the United States is responding.

The lecture will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Fort Howard Theater of the F. K. Bemis International Center on the St. Norbert College campus. General admission is $5 at the door.

Ishay's lecture is the eighth and final installment in the 2015 Great Decisions series, a nationwide program meant to bring together local, regional and national experts to discuss various issues of international interest. The eight-part lecture series is presented on Wednesdays starting in February and running through April. St. Norbert College is one of three institutions of higher learning in Wisconsin that offers the entire series. Great Decisions is sponsored by the St. Norbert College Center for International Education (CIE).
