Hope College Global Coffee Hour

January 31, 2013 | 11:00 AM |
Martha Miller Rotunda (1st floor)

Please join us for a Global Coffee Hour presentation by Dr. Don Luidens (Sociology Department) on Thursday, January 31, 11:00am in the MMC 1st Floor Rotunda.

A spring 2012 sabbatical provided Professor Don Luidens with the opportunity to return to his roots in the Middle East where he was born and spent most of his pre-college life.  Thanks to a GLCA grant, he and his wife traveled to South India where he had been in boarding school in 1955 and 1956 and then to seven Arab countries, witnessing first hand some of the consequences of the Arab Spring.  His re-encounter with his childhood past will set the stage for this presentation and discussion.

All are welcome!
