This lecture will explore the recent withdrawal from Afghanistan, and its causes and consequences in America’s position on the international stage. It will also provide historical, political, and cultural context for this country and region spanning the last 20 years, even 200 years.

Our speaker, Saeed A. Khan is a lecturer in the Department of History and Near East and Asian Studies at Wayne State University. He teaches Islamic and Middle East History, Politics and Culture and where he is also a Fellow at the Center for the Study of Citizenship.

His primary area of research is the identity politics of Muslim Diaspora communities in the US, UK, and Europe. Dr. Khan is also Adjunct Professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Detroit-Mercy and at Rochester College, a panelist on CBC’s Turning Point and contributor to Detroit Today on Detroit Public Radio.

This is the last of five lectures to be presented once each month from February through June of 2022. A new series will start in September 2022. Learn from well-known experts about an array of interesting subjects, with an interactive Q&A period following each lecture.
