Leading Columbia Faculty Members to Hold Teach-In on Crisis in Iraq, Critical International and Domestic Issues, March 26

On Wednesday, March 26, Columbia's faculty will hold a "Teach-In" on the current crisis in Iraq and related topics in the Low Library Rotunda, from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

The History Department's Alan Brinkley, Eric Foner and Anders Stephanson, SIPA's Brigitte Nacos, Jack Snyder and Gary Sick, political scientists Jean Cohen and Brian Barry, MEALC professor George Saliba, Art History's Zainab Bahrani, Law's Kimberle Crenshaw and Journalism's Todd Gitlin are among the list of professors expected to participate.

The faculty members will each offer a 12 to 15 minute presentation covering a range of issues and views. On the table: everything from stability in the Middle East, presidential leadership in times of war and American civil liberties, to the ancient history of Iraq. Professors also will discuss media coverage, pre-U.S. action and on the frontlines, and new realities of U.S. military and foreign policy.

Designed as an educational forum for all Columbia students, the teach-in seeks to promote continued critical examination of the most pressing concerns of our time.
