The Middle Eastern Studies Program of the Department of Judaic and Near Eastern Studies is pleased to present a lecture by Professor Ellis Goldberg.

Professor Goldberg, a leading scholar of law and politics in Egypt and the Middle East, will discuss recent events in Egypt, and in particular, aspects of the collapse of the police and the rise of community (i.e. vigilante) justice in their place and the challenges this places on the Egyptian people.

This event, sponsored by the Middle Eastern Studies Program in the Department of Judaic and Near Eastern Studies,  is co-sponsored by the Department of Political Science and the Five College Seminar on the Middle East.  This lecture is free, open to the public, and  wheelchair accessible.  For more information, email judaic@judnea.umass.edu or call 413-545-2550.
