Myself, together with a journalism colleague from Swinburne University Saba Bebawi, are hosting a series of lectures about the Middle East region called ‘Middle East Mediated’ in Melbourne beginning in the Spring.
The aim is to make what’s going on in that part of the world more accessible to people and hopefully educate them in the process!
Our plan is to begin the series with a seminar on Syria (hopefully in September/October 2014) and feature three interesting, well-recognised and regarded speakers on the region. We will ask them to use a mediated item such as a YouTube video, a tweet or an online article as a launching pad for further discussion. Saba and I will moderate. Speakers may be via Skype from the region.
