About the event

Join Miriam Lowi (Political Science, The College of New Jersey) as she discusses the politics of charitable giving in petro-monarchies of the Arabian Gulf. With her longstanding research focus on the natural resource dimension of political life in the Middle East and North Africa, Miriam has written about conflict over scarce water in the Jordan River Basin and about oil and instability in Algeria. Her current project considers the impact of oil-driven abundance on the way Gulf Arabs live as Muslims today. Her talk is part of this latter project. 

Co-sponsored by Middle East and Middle Eastern American Center (MEMEAC) at the Graduate Center, CUNY.
