Vanderbilt Alumnus to Present the
2001 Harry C. Howard Jr. Lecture
This years Harry C. Howard Jr. Lecture will be presented on Wednesday,
October 24th, at 4:10 p.m. in 126 Wilson Hall, by L. Carl Brown, Garrett
Professor in Foreign Affairs, Emeritus, at Princeton University and
Vanderbilt University alumnus (Class of 1950). The Harry Howard Jr.
lecture series was established in 1994 through the endowment of Mr.
and Mrs. Thomas E. Nash, Jr. and Mr. and Mrs. George D. Renfro in honor
of Harry C. Howard, Jr. (B.A. 1951). While students at Vanderbilt, Professor
Brown and Mr. Howard were classmates, as well as fraternity brothers
in the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity.
Professor Brown is a distinguished historian of the modern Near East
and North Africa, with special emphasis on the Arab world. His 2001
Howard Lecture is entitled In Search of the Middle East.
Professor Browns most recently authored book, Religion and State:
The Muslim Approach to Politics (Columbia University Press, 2000), examines
the broadly held notion that there is no separation between religion
and politics in Islam. Among his many other publications, Professor
Brown is the author of International Politics in the Middle East: Old
Rules, Dangerous Game (Princeton University Press, 1984) and editor
of Diplomacy in the Middle East: The International Relations of Regional
and Outside Powers (New York, I.B. Tauris, 2001).
After graduating from Vanderbilt, Professor Brown spent a year at the
University of Virginia, followed by a year at the London School of Economics
on a Fulbright scholarship. In 1953, he entered the Department of States
Arabic Language and Area studies program and completed tours of duty
in Lebanon and Sudan. He entered a doctoral program at Harvard in 1958,
receiving his Ph.D. in History and Middle Eastern Studies from Harvard
in 1962. He taught at Harvard for four years, moving to Princeton in
1966. Professor Brown retired in 1993, but continues to research and
write in the field of the modern political and diplomatic history of
the Middle East and North Africa.
