Dr. Zaher Wahab, a native of Afghanistan, will present a critical analysis of the political, military, economic, and cultural situation in that war-torn country. Zaher, formerly a professor at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, is Director of Graduate Studies at the Center for Teaching and Learning at the American University of Afghanistan. He has been traveling to Afghanistan every year since 2002 to help rebuild the Afghan higher education system.
This event is free but donations are accepted to help pay for Zaher’s travel costs and the use of the venue. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Doors open 6:30 PM, Zaher speaks at 7:00 PM.
