Using historical analysis and cross-cultural awareness, this conference will emphasize shifting geographies of power in the period between the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and the 2011 Arab Spring. The project is premised on the idea that “the frontiers of cultural understanding” are undergoing a transformation that can only be appreciated through a cross-cultural perspective and a multi-disciplinary methodology that is alert to the historical precedents behind current geopolitical and cultural conflicts.

This conference is being conducted with support from the Worldwide University Network (WUN), a consortium of 18 research universities from five continents. Additional support is provided by the Center for Global Studies, College of Liberal Arts, the School of International Affairs, the Confucius Institute, the Rock Ethics Institute, the International Center for the Study of Terrorism, the Center for Democratic Deliberation, the Department of History, the Department of Comparative Literature, The Department of Political Science, and the University Office of Global Programs.
