    Libya's Higher Education Future

    Darren L. Linvill, assistant professor of communication studies, joined colleagues from around the world to

    discuss the future of Libya’s educational system. He participated in a five-day higher education dialogue,

    “Expanding Opportunities for Libyan Higher Education,” hosted by the Hollings Center for International Dialogue

    in Istanbul, Turkey. He was one of five scholars from U.S. institutions.

    "I was honored to be invited to travel to Istanbul… to discuss the future of higher education in Libya. In the midst

    of ongoing conflict, Libyan educators face daily obstacles that, working at an institution like Clemson, I found

    truly humbling. The Hollings Center Dialogue brought together experts from across the U.S., the E.U., North

    Africa and the Middle East to discuss how Libyans can work to address these obstacles and build a system of

    higher education that can address the present and future needs of a new nation."

    Global Urbanization: The Global Urban Ecosystem by the Planning, Development and Preservation

    department's Jim Spencer (2014)

    This innovative book sees contemporary urban settlement as the new human ecosystems

    defining people's lives across the planet. Just as so-called natural ecosystems have defined

    our view of the symbiosis between humans and their environments; James H. Spencer argues

    that it is an urban ecosystem found across the planet that defines the twenty-first century.

    Using the globally diverse cases of Ho Chi Minh City, Addis Ababa, Honolulu, and New York,

    the book draws out the commonalities in how our intertwined built and social environments

    express a shared humanity across continents and cultures.

    Ottoman Ulema, Turkish Republic: Agents of Change and Guardians of Tradition by History's Amit

    Bein (2011)

    "To better understand the diverse inheritance of Islamic movements in present-

    day Turkey, we must take a closer look at the religious establishment, the ulema,

    during the first half of the twentieth century. During the closing years of the

    Ottoman Empire and the early decades of the Republic of Turkey, the spread of

    secularist and anti-religious ideas had a major impact on the views and political

    leanings of the ulema.

    Bein reveals how competing visions of development influenced debates about

    reforms in religious education and the modernization of the medreses. He also

    explores the reactions and changing attitudes of Islamic intellectuals to the

    religious policies of the secular republic, and provides a better understanding of

    the changes in the relationship between religion and state. Exposing division within

    the religious establishment, this book illuminates the ulema's long-lasting legacies

    still in evidence in Turkey today."

    Landscape Architecture in the Middle East

    In the academic year 2013-2014, Associate Professors, Dr. Hala Nassar and Robert Hewitt were engaged in teaching the

    urban design studio that focused on the waterfront development in Muscat, Oman. Before, the recent Arab Spring,

    Nassar and Hewitt utilized Cairo, Luxor and Rosetta, Egypt as the focus of study in the urban design studio. They have

    co-authored peer-reviewed published work on Internationalization and Multi-culturalism, and have received numerous

    International/National/Regional honors and awards for this work and research in Egypt and Oman.

    International Creative Inquiry

    Exploring the Kanji World as Japanese Culture

    "With the world's second largest economy and a focus on technological innovation, Japan is a country with its

    eyes set on the future. Therefore, it is no surprise that Clemson students from all majors are investing their time

    in studying the language of this island nation.

    Yet there is one hurdle that has discouraged many students from furthering

    their Japanese education. Kanji, the Japanese writing system adopted from

    Chinese pictographs, is especially difficult to learn. One Creative Inquiry team

    has found a way to cater to American students' way of learning and make

    studying kanji more accessible. Associate professor Toshiko Kishimoto and her

    Creative Inquiry team are working to create an application for Android phones

    that will bridge the gap between U.S. college students and thousands of kanji

    characters."
