Queen Noor to Appear at NY Public Library

HMQN.JPGThe New York Public Library will host her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan tonight in a panel discussion, part of a special three-night series of conversations in the Muslim Voices: Arts & Ideas Festival.

Entitled “Media: “A Catalyst for Change,” the discussion will be moderated by Shamil Idriss from the Alliance of Civilizations Media Fund. Other panelists include Benjamin Barber (author of “Jihad vs. McWorld“) and Andrea ter Avest Dahm, a dramatist from the Netherlands. Queen Noor will represent the King Hussein Foundation.

The series concludes tomorrow evening, and here’s more from the release: “Popular media images or negative stereotypes that insult or humiliate Muslim groups have been shown to be related to the polarization between Muslim and Western societies. As rapid technological advances expand media’s capacity to shape our views of the world as well as each other, this panel seeks to investigate what role entertainment media (film, TV and new media) can play in improving cross-cultural understanding.”
