Fulbrighters Enjoy Seminar on “Role of the Media in the Egyptian Uprising”
On November 2 American Fulbrighters gathered at the Villa for a seminar on “The Role of the Media in the Egyptian Uprising.” The seminar, which featured Mr. Hesham Kassem, former publisher of Al Masry Al Youm and Cairo Times, was well received. “Very informative and timely,” said one Fulbrighter. “… could not have had a more interesting speaker.” “… sobering perspective … learned a lot from this lecture,” said a second. “Please, more talks, seminars, lectures like this!” requested a third. The seminar was arranged by the Commission’s Cultural and Educational Program, which sponsors site visits, seminars, and other activities to help its American grantees understand Egypt and its culture. The Commission is grateful to Mr. Hesham.
