For those in the area and interested, just a quick note that I will be appearing on an Institute for Middle East Studies panel discussion Monday afternoon entitled "What have we learned about Islamist political movements?" It is the public portion of a day-long academic workshop featuring a number of leading political scientists whose work focuses on various dimensions of Islamist activism. The public event will feature Amr Hamzawy (Carnegie), Janine Clark (University of Guelph), Joshua Stacher (Syracuse), Nathan Brown and me. It's at the Elliott School, Room 602, from 3:30 to 5:00 on Monday, May 12. Hope to see you there!
