In 2006 we initiated with the Turkish American Friendship Society - US and helped organize a semester-long professional development program on Turkey for humanities and social sciences professors at the Community College, which culminated in a week long intensive workshop in Istanbul. This followed a highly successful year of programming on Egypt at CCP as part of their Title VI grant on the Middle East in 2005, capped by a week long workshop in Cairo with various experts on ancient and modern Egypt, organized by Penn Ph.D. student Stacey Philbrick Yadav and all supported by the Middle East Center.
