”Globe and Mail” journalist to lead discussion on whether immigrants really threaten the West

Students, faculty and staff are invited to attend “The Myth of the Rising Tide: Do Immigrants Threaten the West?”

This event, coordinated by the Northeast Ohio Consortium for Middle East Studies, will be a lunchtime discussion with Doug Saunders, Toronto Globe and Mail journalist and author of Arrival Cities and The Myth of the Muslim Tide. In the discussion, Saunders will address popular myths of the “Islamic threat” to the West after 9/11 and the realities of Muslim immigration, integration and public perception.

The event will be held April 17 at 12:30 p.m. in the Thwing Center’s 1914 Lounge.
