Mapping the Mahjar

Mapping the Mahjar is a project that is meant to visually represent information about Lebanese immigrants in the US and elsewhere. Through this visual representation we seek to understand the social, economic, cultural and demographic aspects of these various communities. Below are essays that provide such perspectives. We will continually add new essays which combine text and maps, graphs and other visual representations.

Call for Papers: We would like to expand this project to work collaboratively with scholars across the world. Please read the call for papers to learn more.
