Michelle Cioffoletti Guest Lectures at American University
On Wednesday, November 4, Michelle Cioffoletti guest lectured at two intercultural communication courses for undergraduate students at American University in Washington, D.C. She presented her model on conflict resolution for Syrian refugees in Turkey. Both lectures focused on the changing cultural and political paradigms in Turkey as a result of the influx of refugees.
The guest lecture was followed by a Q and A session, where students had the opportunity to discuss the conflict in Syria and humanitarian conflicts overall.
