Dr. Sahar Khamis engaged in a lively conversation with her guest distinguished journalist and academic Prof. Lawrence Pintak about his long journey covering the Middle East region and writing about it for over 40 years, which culminated in his most recent book: America & Islam: Soundbites, Suicide Bombs and the Road to Donald Trump. The conversation will tackle how and why he developed an interest in covering this region, both as a journalist and as an academic, his previous books, his current projects, and his future plans, with a special focus on the most important highlights from this new and timely book. Lawrence Pintak is the author of America & Islam: Soundbites, Suicide Bombs and the Road to Donald Trump (Bloomsbury/I.B. Tauris, June 2019) and five other books on the intersection of media, perception and U.S. policy toward the Muslim world.

Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University (2009-2016) and previously served as director of the Kamal Adham Center for Journalism at The American University in Cairo.
