The Many Truths of the Middle East


Harout Ekmanian, a Syrian-Armenian journalist, was the guest of the USC Institute of Armenian Studies at a lunchtime conversation at the USC Tutor Campus Center.

Harout spoke about the difficult task facing anyone studying the modern Middle East, at any time, and especially now, as violence rages across borders and among communities who have forged bonds and lived together in the same state for decades or centuries. USC Professor Sandy Tolan, a journalist who teaches at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, guided the discussion.
