Center for Middle East Studies

Events

The Center hosts frequent public forums, lectures, panel discussions, film screenings, and international conferences. We are happy to co-program with various academic departments, research centers, and student groups across the University of Denver. Our aim is twofold: to promote spirited discussion and research on the Middle East at DU, and to make the best and brightest scholars, policymakers, and intellectuals from around the world accessible to the university community.
