First off today, Iraqi-born, Maryland-residing professor Adil Shamoo joins us to discuss where he would like to see US foreign policy in Iraq go from here. Here’s his July 16 editorial from The Sun: “America Should Leave Iraq, But For the Right Reasons.”
Then, we’ll hear about the long history of struggle for democracy within Iran. Our guests are Janet Afary and Kevin B. Anderson. They are husband and wife, and co-authors of both the book Foucault and The Iranian Revolution: Gender and The Seductions of Islamism and the recent article in The Nation magazine “The Iranian Impasse.”
Lastly, anyone been to The Walters Museum lately and seen The Gee’s Bend exhibit? Tune in to hear an interview with Louisiana Bendolph and Mary Lee Bendolph, two of the quilters from Gee’s Bend, as well as Linda Day Clark, whose photographs from Gee’s Bend make up an accompanying exhibit.
