America, the Muslim Brotherhood and Realpolitik: Understanding the Other

March 4, 2014

Dear WOTR readers:

As a part of my role as the Kissinger Chair at the Library of Congress, the John W. Kluge Center is hosting a series of events on “The Return of Realpolitik.”  Please join me for the first of this series: a discussion with Dr. Martyn Frampton and me on America’s engagement with, and understanding of, the Muslim Brotherhood since 1945 and what this says about concepts of realpolitik. Dr. Frampton is Senior Lecturer in Modern History at Queen Mary University of London. He is working on a new project that examines the history of the relationship between the west and the Muslim Brotherhood, based on English and Arabic documents.

WHEN: THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 4 p.m.

WHERE: Room LJ-119, first floor of the Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First St SE.

The event is free and open to the public. No RSVP is required. Please allow time to get through security at the Jefferson Building.

Best,

John
