Adrian Winchester ’18 presented a paper titled "The Millennial Generation’s Impact on Revolutionary Movements and the Middle East: An Expansion on Juan Cole’s The Young Arabs" at the Association of Global South Studies Conference held Dec. 14-16 in Marrakesh, Morocco. An international studies major, Winchester was able to travel to the conference thanks to financial support from Rhodes.
His presentation drew from his own experiences studying in Amman, Jordan, during the 2017 spring semester. Of that experience, Winchester has said, “I chose Jordan because I have found that the Middle East is a region that has increasingly been misunderstood, either in the media or in the study of regional conflict. I was eager to learn more about the day-to-day life of people in the Middle East, and Jordan provided the perfect opportunity.”
