Glen Kessler of the Washington Post Visits AUI! Plus, a Lecture on Islamophobia Throughout and Outside Islamic Cultures

Last week Thursday, I covered two of the best lectures held at AUI this semester. The first was given by Glen Kessler of the Washington Post‘s “Fact Checker” blog. Kessler explored the importance of unbiased and factual journalism to democracy and self-censorship among Moroccan youth. I had lunch with him after the lecture, and can verify that he’s just as incredible in person as at the podium. Here’s the write-up.

The second lecture was by AUI Professor Stephen Trevathan, who examined discrimination against Muslims both inside and outside Islamic societies. Here’s coverage of his talk.

Now, on to you, dear readers: What would you like to read about next week?
