Tarikh ~ History of Lebanon — Conversation With Ussama Makdisi

Monday, January 30, 2023 12 pm to 1 pm

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.

Tarikh is a series of conversations with scholars who will provide insights into the latest scholarship on the history of Lebanon and its diaspora.
