Common Dialogue Day Sept. 26 at SHU

Siena Heights University will host comedian, writer and speaker Amer Zahr as part of the university’s annual Common Dialogue Day event Sept. 26 on the Adrian campus. His talk will be at 9:30 a.m. in the Fieldhouse on the Adrian campus.

Of Arab-American descent, Zahr is an adjunct professor at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law. According to his web site profile, he draws on his experiences growing up as a child of Palestinian immigrant parents, performing and lecturing on topics like politics, society, Islam and growing up Arab.

Common Dialogue Day is a traditional day for discussion and debate at SHU. It is open to students, faculty and staff as well as the local community. There are several presentations scheduled around the topic of “the Common Good,” which is SHU’s academic theme for 2017-18. Those breakout sessions are scheduled throughout the day on campus.
