The Kurdish National Dream lecture at Mark Twain Library on Saturday, November 16 from 3 to 4:30 pm.
The Allen and Helen Hermes Arts Series welcomes educator Christopher Stewart to present on the Kurdish National Dream. Christopher will speak to the history of the Kurdish population and bring it to light by sharing his personal experiences within the culture. He has worked in the non-profit education world for nine years, most recently in Dohuk, Iraq, at a private Kurdish school. Christopher began his teaching career in Cairo during the Darfur Crisis at a school for displaced Sudanese children. From there he taught English in India and Japan, returning to the US to serve with AmeriCorps education and literacy teams in St. Louis and South Chicago. He is currently completing a Masters of Deaf Education with Fontbonne University’ Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech.
