In 1991, Fares I. Fares, a trustee and member of Tufts' International Board of Overseers and the Board of Overseers for Arts and Sciences and the son of former trustee Issam M. Fares (Deputy Prime Minister of Lebanon), first conceived of a lectures series to further understanding of the issues facing the Middle East. Today, the Issam M. Fares Lecture Series is the fulfillment of that idea. The lecture series is supported by an endowment from the Fares Foundation that enables Tufts University to implement a program for promoting Middle Eastern studies in the humanities, social sciences, and arts, including history, political science, economics, sociology, anthropology, demographic studies, and languages.
