South-East Asia religions: in class with Thai Buddhist monks

Students of the new South-East Asia curriculum have met two Thai Buddihst monks — an experience that bridges the gap between the students and the religious culture they learn about in class. 

Afghanistan: the graveyard of empires or of democracy?

What is currently happening in Afghanistan is the most recent development of a conflict that has been plaguing the country for decades, and that has involved Italy as well as the US and other allies since 2001. Professor Simone Cristoforetti, an expert in the history of Islamic countries at the Department of Asian and North African Studies, helps us understand the situation from a historical perspective.
