Singleton’s Middle East Course Featured on WABI
WABI (Channel 5) reported on a Middle East course taught by Seth Singleton, a professor of international affairs and political science at the University of Maine. The current conflict in Syria has become a topic of discussion in the class, according to the report. “The whole Middle East is in tumult, it’s in the middle basically of a revolution. It probably has another 10 or 20 years to go before that works itself out,” Singleton said. Hamdane Borji, a graduate student who is co-teaching the class, said he is glad he can share his perspective with students. “I think what’s going on is really, really important to understand because it’s going to take a little while and there are different things that are going on that we need to analyze and predict what’s going to happen in the future and that basically will affect the entire world,” he said.
