About this Event
Please join the Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies for a conversation with Ussama Makdisi, a professor of history and chancellor’s chair at the University of California, Berkeley, about his most recent book, Age of Coexistence. In this conversation, we will explore a period in Lebanese history where thinkers and intellectuals in Bilad al-Sham began to imagine, discuss and implement a new and secular political order to replace the old Ottoman system.
The Tarikh series features experts in Lebanese diaspora studies. The expects share stories that give participants insight into the history of Lebanon from the perspective of migrants in the global diaspora.
