Richard Wike, Director of Global Attitudes Research Pew Research Center, will discuss the results of Pew Foundation studies regarding attitudes of Middle Eastern nations and people of the United States.

“What They Think of Us,” is a part of a lecture series called Iran, The Middle East and ISIS, that addresses the continuing crisis in the Middle East by explaining its historical origins and examining regional attitudes of the United States, as well as focusing on the challenges posed by Iran and the terrorist group ISIS. Visiting scholars will evaluate potential threats to America and the world along with considering prospects for the future. Because of the rapidly changing conditions in the Middle East the lecture topics are subject to change.

All Six lectures are free and open to the public and will be on the Blackwood Campus of Camden County College. For more information on the lecture series click here.
