The Global Affairs Center at Shoreline Community College, directed by Edmonds resident Larry Fuell, is continuing its Global Eyes series with a lunchtime presentation Tuesday, May 20: “Re-engagement between the U.S. and Iran: Turbulent relations in the past. Better relations in the future?”
The speaker is David Woodward, President & CEO of Associates in Cultural Exchange. An interim agreement with Iran and members of the international community was reached last November. Since then, Iran’s trade relationship has witnesses interesting changes, with the U.S. Treasury Department authorizing the export of academic exchanges and educational services to Iran — allowing for online courses as well as academic exchanges.
Woodward was born in Teheran, and spent his early youth in Southern Iran. He is fluent in Persian (Farsi), Arabic and French, and holds multiple degrees in History, Education, and Fine Arts.
The presentation, free and open to the public, will run from 1:30-2:30 p.m. in Room 1104. The campus map is here.
