Join us as one of the country's top scholars on the Middle East, Joel Beinin, helps us catch up with the ever-changing political landscape of the volatile region. UPDATE: Prof. Beinin has just returned from a trip to Lebanon. Come to the forum and learn the very latest with an eyewitness account.

Israel has just held new elections; what does the outcome tell us? What impact on the region does the continuing bloody warfare in Syria portend? What has happened to Egypt's revolution? And will peace negotiations between Palestine and Israel ever resume ... or lead anywhere? What are your questions? Come to this forum and learn.

Joel Beinin has written or edited nine books. His articles have been published in leading scholarly journals as well as The Nation, Middle East Report, The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, Le Monde Diplomatique, and others. He has appeared on Al-Jazeera TV, BBC radio, National Public Radio, and many other TV and radio programs throughout North America, and in France, Egypt, Singapore, and Australia, and has given frequent interviews to the global media. In 2002 he served as President of the Middle East Studies Association of North America.
