Grand Reunion Weekend: President's Speaker Series - Reza Aslan '95
The Promise and Perils of the Arab Spring
How is the landscape changing in the already-tumultuous Middle East as tensions mount among Iran, Israel, and the United States? Does the political rhetoric in the headlines accurately depict the potential international crisis?
Born in Tehran and raised in San Jose, Reza Aslan '95 speaks for a generation of Muslims who eschew the fundamentalist stereotype and want to usher in a new era of Islamic democracy. He is a writer, scholar of religions, media entrepreneur, and one of the most articulate and candid political commentators on Islamic issues.
