Lecture at Wright Museum

Middle East Examined at Next Wright Museum Lecture

On Tuesday, September 18 from 7 to 8 p.m., The Wright Museum of World War II will present “Conflicts in the Middle East and International Security,” a lecture by Mohamad Defaa.

Part of the Wright Museum’s 2018 Lecture Series, sponsored by Ron Goodgame and Donna Canney, this lecture will provide insight into the historical, sociocultural, and religious background of the conflicts in the Middle East. Defaa will also discuss the threat these conflicts pose worldwide.

Certified by the International Center for Educational and Cultural Consulting in Lyon, France, Defaa earned a BA in French Language and Literature from the University Ibn Tofail in Kénitra, Morocco. He also possesses an MA in Communication and Expression from the University Mohamed V in Rabat, Morocco.

“So much of what we think we know about the Middle East becomes clouded in the different media which bring is us the news of the region, said Mike Culver, executive director of the Wright Museum. “Mohamad has spoken at the Museum before and he is a wonderful source about the Middle East. This lecture will provide real context and understanding for these complicated issues.”

The Wright Museum’s Lecture Series takes place every Tuesday through the end of the museum’s season, which concludes Oct. 31.

Admission is $3 for members and $8 for non-members. Seating is limited, and reservations can be made by calling 603-569-1212.

Wright Museum is open daily through Oct. 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
