Dr. Barbara Sude, Senior Political Scientist for the RAND Corporation, will speak at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 8 at The Citadel Alumni Center. Her topic, very relevant to current events will be, The Multiple Crises in the Middle East: Where Are They Headed and What Can Washington Do About Them? She will answer questions at the end.
Dr. Sude has extensive experience working for our federal government where she specialized in the analysis of Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, and counterterrorism.
She earned her B.S. in Arabic Studies from Georgetown University and graduated from Princeton with a Ph.D. in Near Eastern Studies. Her research has been in Asymmetric Warfare, Counterterrorism and Iraq.
In our world of expanding globalization, understanding and clarification of current trends and events is increasingly important to us all. The World Affairs Council of Charleston, in association with the national organization the World Affairs Councils of America, capably serves this need. Many barrier island citizens lead and serve as active members.
Our connection with The Citadel strengthens the mission and provides us an outstanding venue for our meetings, typically six per year. The Alumni Center is located at 69 Hagood Avenue, just across from the stadium. Parking is ample, close, and free. Members and guests assemble for the social hour, beginning at 5:15 p.m.
One can attend as a guest once, for $20. Individual membership is $100 and couple membership (any two individuals in a household) is $170.
One can join with a credit card/Pay Pal at our website, waccharleston.org or at the meeting. Come join us on October 8. You will be moved by your enhanced understanding. You will meet interesting people.
