Suad Joseph awarded donation for the Middle East/South Asia Studies Program

Suad Joseph won a $250,000 donation for the Middle East/South Asia Studies Program (ME/SA) over the next five years for Arab Studies.  It will provide for course development, support the development of a Minor Concentration in Arab Studies in the ME/SA Program, an Arab Studies Lecture Series, and a Visiting Professor in Arab Studies in two years.  This will benefit the students in the Anthropology Department as well as other programs as there are many students on campus whose focus of study is the Middle East.
