This summer, Dr. Rabil will present a four-week course at FAU LLS Jupiter titled “Talk of the Day” which will examine the most debated cultural and political issues as related to U.S. values and foreign policy. These lectures strive to provide context and background against which these issues have become national news and seek to shed light on the implications of these conflicted issues for the collective consciousness of the American nation.

Classes will begin on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at 10 a.m.  If a student cannot attend all four lectures of the course, an Explorer Ticket may be purchased at the door for $15. We allow this one time for a four-week course.

Dr. Rabil’s books have been highly commended and reviewed by major academic journals in the U.S., U.K., Arab world, Australia, Israel and Iran. His recent book on Salafism, based on Arabic primary sources and field research trips to the Middle East, broke new ground in the fields of Islamism, terrorism and Middle East politics. He is considered one of the leading experts on Salafism, radical Islam, U.S.-Arab and Arab-Israeli relations and terrorism. He served as Chief of Emergency for the Red Cross in Lebanon and was Project Manager of the U.S. State Department-funded Iraq Research and Documentation Project. He lectures nationally and internationally, and participates in forums and seminars sponsored by the U.S. government, including the U.S. Army and the National Intelligence Council. He holds a Masters in Government from Harvard University and a Ph.D. in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies from Brandeis University. In May 2012, he was conferred with an honorary Ph.D. in humanities from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. He is a Professor of Political Science at Florida Atlantic University (FAU).
