Muslim Brotherhood subject of latest Speakers’ Series lecture
Next UW-Sheboygan lecture offered April 2
The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan and its faculty, instructors and staff invite the Sheboygan community to a new Speakers’ Series that will feature UW-S instructors sharing presentations on their research and interest areas. Each semester, the campus will offer a new series of speakers and topics
The next presentation will be held on April 2 at 7 p.m. in the Wombat Room (Room 2114) in the Main Building on the UW-S campus. UW-Sheboygan Religion and Philosophy Senior Lecturer Dr. Rich Edwards will discuss “The Muslim Brotherhood and Their Plan for the Future of Egypt, Israel and the United States.”
Edwards has taught, worked and written extensively on the religions and conflicts in the Middle East for the past several decades. His presentation will explore the history, beliefs and goals of the Muslim Brotherhood and the changes that the Brotherhood has already brought to Egypt.
“We will discuss the relationship of the Muslim Brotherhood to the current United States government and the dangers and/or opportunities in that relationship both for the US and Israel,” Edwards said. “I also will explore the growing cooperative relationship of the Muslim Brotherhood and the current Iranian government and what that means for the whole of the Middle East.”
According to Carrie Hoppe, UW-Sheboygan Director of University Relations, the lecture program allows UW-Sheboygan instructors to showcase their interests and scholarly research in a new way to the community at large.
“As faculty and instructors, these individuals share their knowledge every day in the classroom, but each of them also have special interest areas that they enjoy learning more about whenever they can,” Hoppe said. “This series will allow the presenters to share that research and knowledge with others who might also share similar interests and give the community direct access to the skills and talents of UW-Sheboygan’s outstanding professors to further encourage lifelong learning.”
All presentations will be held in the Wombat Room (Room 2114) at 7 p.m. Admission is free to the community and students.
