Events: Issam M. Fares Lecture

In 1991, Fares I. Fares, trustee and the son of Trustee Emeritus Issam M. Fares, first conceived of a lecture series to further the understanding of issues facing the Middle East. Today, the Issam M. Fares Lecture is the fulfillment of that idea. Since his graduation from Tufts University in 1992, Fares I. Fares has remained active in providing input about the lecture series, as well as in the activities of the Executive Committee of the Fares Center.

The Issam M. Fares Lecture is supported by an endowment from the Fares Foundation that enables Tufts University to promote Middle Eastern studies in the humanities, social sciences, and arts, through courses in history, political science, economics, sociology, anthropology, demographic studies, and languages.
