On Wednesday, Aug. 29, OU professor Joshua Landis will speak in front of OU students, staff and faculty and public as part of a President's Associates dinner.
Landis, director of the Center for Middle East Studies, will discuss the current revolution in Syria with his presentation, "Syria at the Crossroads," in the Molly Shi Boren Ballroom in the Oklahoma Memorial Union.
"He will discuss the current situation in Syria and factors which have led to it," President Boren said in a press release.
Landis is a well-renown middle-eastern scholar often cited by other news outlets such as NPR and the Wall Street Journal.
"President Boren loves having speakers," said press secretary Michael Nash. "He is very excited, and we are all really happy and lucky to have Dr. Landis on the staff at the University of Oklahoma."
