    On Monday 21 February Professor Daniel Martin Varisco will give a lecture on the political developments in Yemen, in the context of the recent events in the Arab world. Time: 15:00 – 17:00 hours. Location: Lipsius building, lecture room 227 (Cleveringaplaats 1, Leiden).

    Daniel Martin Varisco is chair of anthropology and director of Middle Eastern and Central Asia studies at Hofstra University (New York, US). He has done fieldwork in Yemen and focussed on local water rights in the springfed irrigation system in relation to the local environmental constraints and principles of Islamic water law (his website on Yemen can be accessed here).

    Besides his expertise in Yemen, Professor Varisco has published extensively on a wide range of subjects related to Islam and the Middle East. Professor Varisco’s lecture promises to provide us with interesting insights into the political developments in Yemen, which is particularly relevant considering the current situation in the Arab world.

    All are welcome!
