RedTracker| Looking for more news on Queen Rania’s visit to New York last week, we found her at Yale University last Tuesday, joining Yale President Richard C. Levin in a frank conversation on key topics including her bold statements on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Queen Rania, daughter of Palestinian parents, was born in Kuwait and educated at the American University in Cairo. Reminding guests that Jordan lives daily with the consequences of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, Queen Rania asked Americans to become more involved with this key issue for people living in the Arab world.
Before her talk, Levin announced the creation of the Queen Rania Fellowship for the Study of the Contemporary Middle East, which will provide scholarship funding to masters students studying the region.
Queen Rania’s visit also coincided with Yale’s exhibition of “Breaking the Veils: Women Artists from the Islamic World,” an exhibit that she initiated in Greece in 2002, with the objective to explore the diverse roles of women in the Arab world.
We’ll look next at the exhibit in Les Artistes. See Women Artists from the Islamic World Change Our Visions. Anne
