Max Carter, Students Speak About Middle East April 14
Friends Center Director Max Carter has been visiting the Middle East for 43 years, including a trip earlier this year during Guilford’s first January Term.
“Every year I go it gets worse,” Max said. “You don’t really know what is going on until you experience it from others’ points of view.”
Those differing points of view will be the focus of a discussion – “Competing Narratives in the Middle East: A Guilford College January Term Perspective” – led by Max and two students at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, April 14, in the lower level of Hege Library. Students Hannah Schewel and Kelly Lewis will speak about their J-Term experience as first-time travelers to Palestine and Israel.
Free and open to the public, the seminar is sponsored by Guilford College Friends of the Library. Refreshments will be served.
The program is presented in advance of Thomas Friedman’s April 16 Bryan Series lecture on Middle East issues.
