Chris Schaefer, an expert on affairs in the Middle East, will present our November 14 program, outlining for us the current situation in Iran. Having been bombarded with news reports regarding the political situation as well as the economic picture in that nation, we will have an opportunity to hear a speaker who devotes his life to understanding others’ points of view. We all yearn for peace abroad, and he can lead us to a realization of the many-faceted problems that face our leaders as they make policy decisions. This is an opportunity for us to become better informed about affairs in that part of the world.
Schaefer has taught courses about the history and politics of the Middle East at the University of Utah’s Osher Learning Institute in Salt Lake City for over ten years. He is the recipient of the university’s Brooke Hopkins Award for Excellence in adult teaching. In 2019 he brought his first course on the Middle East to the Women’s Institute of Houston.
