[632] MTSU professor puts Middle East in perspective on ‘MTSU On the Record’

MURFREESBORO — A fresh look at the Middle East is in store on the next edition of the “MTSU On the Record” radio program.

Host Gina Logue’s interview with Dr. Sean Foley will air from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, June 23, and from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Sunday, June 29, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org).

Foley, an associate professor of history, will offer his views on the arrest of a suspect in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the American embassy in Benghazi, Libya, and the escalation of violence in Iraq by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

In addition, he will discuss his past year’s work in Saudi Arabia, conducting research all over the kingdom to assess its politics and cultures with the help of MTSU’s Saudi alumni.

“There are many Saudi students who come to campus,” said Foley. “It’s been a tremendously rewarding exchange, not only for them, but for us.”
