Retrospective of Arab Intellectuals
A series organized by the Center for Arab and Middle Eastern Studies and the Mohammad Atallah Chair for Ethics at the American University of Beirut, in collaboration with the Institut Français du Proche-Orient (Ifpo). This monthly series aims to highlight the work and legacies of several Arab intellectual figures. It will take place during the academic year 2021-2022 and will be online and/or in-person. Each event will include two talks: one will be a lecture on the work of the “intellectual of the month” and his/her legacy, and the other will be a lecture from this figure which includes a response. These events will be open to the public (online and in-person), and the audience will be invited to participate in a Q & A session at the end of each event. All events will be filmed and posted on YouTube.
