Culture and Dignity: Dialogues Between the Middle East and the West

Dates: 
Thursday, December 6, 2012 - 7:30pm

by Professor Laura Nader

presented by UC Berkeley’s International House

UC Berkeley International House, Auditorium, 2299 Piedmont Avenue, Berkeley

Join us Dec. 6 at 7:30 pm at the I-House Auditorium for a discussion and book signing by renowned cultural anthropologist and UC Berkeley Professor of Anthropology, Laura Nader. In Culture and Dignity, Nader delves deeply into the historical roots of the complex relationship between the East and the West, revealing how our cultural differences too often lead to violence. Through vivid examples taken from history, Nader reveals the myriad indignities and false assumptions that surround Western dealings with Arabs and Muslims. Her views are based on the premise that a look in the mirror is essential to better understanding of the cultures of the East and the West.
