What does everyday life look like in the Greater Middle East? DePaul Professor
Robin Hoecker curated this student photo exhibit in Germany as a response
to lslamophobia and 9/11. Looking back at these photos in the context of our
current climate, the panelists will address why such exhibitions are
important, consider the counter-image that these photos present, and address
how stereotypes can be contested. The panelists are Dr. Robin Hoecker,
Assistant Professor in De Paul's College of Communication, who teaches
photojournalism; Dr. Karim Pakravan, Instructor in DePaul's Department of
Economics, whose articles regarding the contemporary Middle East are found
across a variety of media outlets, and Saleh K. Akhras, President of the DePaul
chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. This event is a collaboration
between the Department of Religious Studies, DePaul's Center for Religion,
Culture, and Community (CRCC) and the DePaul Humanities Center (DHC).
Nancy Sherman will present her talk, "Stoics on Stuff: Consolations on Attachment and Loss," via Zoom
For Black Americans World War II was about not only America’s standing in the world but also about how much actual freedom would exist in the United States. They formed the backbone of the United States military’s supply effort, enabling the Allies to fight and win a global war, while fighting in a segregated military. Black veterans returned from the war and kept fighting white supremacy at home, fueling the civil rights movement. Drawing on his new book, historian Matthew Delmont explains how World War II raised questions regarding race and democracy that remain unanswered more than seventy years later.

Delia Ramírez, Congresswoman for the 3rd District of Illinois, a Guatemalan American who is the first Latina to represent the Midwest in Congress
Lakesia Collins, State Representative for the 9th District in the Illinois House, covering North Lawndale, the Near West Side, and Old Town
Josina Morita, Cook County Commissioner for the 13th District, the first Asian American woman on the Cook County Board
Lilian Jiménez, State Representative for the 4th District in the Illinois House, a Puerto Rican and Mexican woman to represent Humboldt Park and the Near Northwest Side
The department would greatly appreciate it if you could help us share this widely with students, staff, and faculty! You may register here. Food and refreshments will be provided.
We want to thank the Center for Black Diaspora, the Center for Latino Research, Critical Ethnic Studies, Peace, Justice, and Conflict Studies, Women and Gender Studies, and Political Science for co-sponsoring this event!
