Georgetown Dean Lectures on the Impact of Geography in Middle Eastern Politics

Hosted by the Qatar Natural History Group, the talk by Dr James Reardon-Anderson will focus on how the location of water sources and petroleum has affected human behaviour and policies in the region. It will be held on 15 March, 7 pm at GU-Q’s Education City campus.

Dr Reardon-Anderson said this is an opportunity to exchange knowledge on the role geography has played in the region, historically and in the present day.

According to QNHG public relations representative Dr Thierry Lesales, the event forms part of the QNHG’s expert lecture series.

Through these monthly talks and field trips, the group strives to discover the environment, history and culture of Qatar. We count on the goodwill of specialists who generously accept to spend time with us and share their knowledge.’

QNHG was founded in 1978, and is aimed at bringing people, interested in the natural history of Qatar and the Gulf, together. In addition to monthly lectures, it also hosts regular field trips to sites of cultural, historical, and archaeological interest.

Dr James Reardon-Anderson is the founding dean of GU-Q and the Sun Yat Sen professor of Chinese Studies at Georgetown University. He has been a member of Georgetown faculty since 1985 and previously taught at the University of Michigan, Johns Hopkins University, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He holds a PhD from Columbia University and is the author of five books on China, covering foreign policy, the environment, and history. His latest book, which focuses on China and the Middle East, is scheduled for publication later this year.
