    The Department of Philosophy welcomes David Wood presenting "Disconcerting Experience."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Department of Philosophy welcomes David Wood presenting "Disconcerting Experience." Why is experience important to philosophy? It can provide evidence for our beliefs. It can help keep us open to the world. But everything hangs on what counts as experience. Those that shake our fondest assumptions deserve special attention. David Wood is the W. Alton Jones Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Wood's interests lie in the possibilities of reading and thinking opened up by contemporary continental philosophy and by nineteenth century German thought.
    Address: Samson Talbot Hall, Room 210, Denison University, 350 Ridge Road, Granville, OH 43023
    Open to Public: Yes

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Ziad Abu-Rish presenting "Jordan, the Arab Uprisings, and the Legacies of State Formation."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Ziad Abu-Rish presenting "Jordan, the Arab Uprisings, and the Legacies of State Formation." This presentation will discuss the reverberations of the Arab uprisings in Jordan between 2011 and 2013. While activist groups and various other political forces organized demonstrations in Jordan during this period, neither the number of people who took to the streets nor the nature of the demands advanced by them approximated those of protests in Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, and elsewhere. This presentation will offer an explanation rooted in historical institutionalism, regime-opposition dynamics, and the strategic importance of Jordan to regional and global powers. In short, the desire of the Jordanian citizenry for a more transparent, accountable, and socio-economically just political system is no less than any other part of the world. Abu-Rish is an assistant professor of Middle East history in the Department of History at Ohio University.

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Awad Halabi presenting "From Coup d’états to Alliances: The US Involvement in the Middle East Since WWII."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Awad Halabi presenting "From Coup d’états to Alliances: The US Involvement in the Middle East Since WWII." This talk examines the larger trends that have characterized US involvement in the Middle East since WWII, such as maintaining access to oil in the region and preventing the Soviet Union from gaining a presence in the area. These larger interests have shaped how the US has engaged with questions of democracy in the Middle East, such as at time sponsoring coup d’états and other times forging alliances with monarchies and dictators. Halabi is an associate professor serving in the departments of history and religion at Wright State University specializing in the Middle East and Islam.

    The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Brenda Boyle presenting “Recollecting Vietnam: The Stories Americans Tell.”
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Tuesday Faculty Lunch Series welcomes Brenda Boyle presenting “Recollecting Vietnam: The Stories Americans Tell.” The stories we tell about war not only shape how we think about a particular war but also influence our willingness to engage in future wars. Fiction and non-fiction narratives about American involvement in Viet Nam before and during the 1965-1973 Vietnam War tell historically contextualized tales of Americans arrogantly following in the steps of their French allies, whose war to recolonize Viet Nam after World War II the United States funded and then took up after the French defeat in 1954 and the division of the country into North and South Vietnam.

    The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Melanie Finney presenting "Northern Ireland's Continuing Quest for Peace."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Global Studies Seminar welcomes Melanie Finney presenting "Northern Ireland's Continuing Quest for Peace." In 1998, citizens on both sides of the border of Ireland and Northern Ireland ratified the Good Friday Belfast Agreement. Brokered in part by former U.S. Senator George Mitchell, the agreement was considered an end of violence during the period known as the Troubles, and the beginning of a joint, government and community. However, many issues remain unresolved in the 16 years since the agreement was made. This paper examines some of these issues and argues that the ongoing peace process is still tenuous. Several issues are still contested in Northern Ireland, including observation of various cultural traditions such as display of flags and parading, memorialization and commemoration of specific sites related to the Troubles, and the concerns with the process of truth and reconciliation. Finney will also discuss the Boston College interviews that prompted international debate and led to the arrest of Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams in Spring 2014 and how these events have further jeopardized the peace process. Finney teaches in the departments of communication and theatre at DePauw University.
