Event Description

The United States has been engaged in military operations in Afghanistan for the past decade, yet most Americans know very little about the country's complex history and culture, and only 12% of students in the U.S. can locate Afghanistan on a map. This timely webinar series elaborates on three themes drawn from Homeland Afghanistan, an online resource created by the Asia Society that explores the geopolitical and cultural heritage of Afghanistan through 75 vibrant and information-packed documentary videos. Each webinar will feature a dynamic presentation by a noted scholar, an interactive question and answer session, and a bibliography that includes classroom-ready resources. Attend one, two, or all three of the webinars to enhance your knowledge of Afghanistan and gain deeper insight into Afghanistan's rich political, religious, and artistic traditions.

This webinar is the second in a series of three.
