On Monday May 15 the Council partnered with the Rainier Club to host Dr. Stephanie Selover, Assistant Professor in Archaeology in the Near Eastern Languages and Civilization department at the University of Washington for a discussion on Antiquities at Risk in the Middle East. Topics addressed included an overview of Daesh, the motivation and ideology behind the destruction of cultural heritage sites and examples of sites that have been desecrated, and the efforts to rebuild and recover such sites.
