Event description

Description

Ussama Makdisi, Ph.D., Visiting Professor of History, UC Berkeley; Author, Age of Coexistence: The Ecumenical Frame and the Making of the Modern Arab World
In Conversation with Eddy Simonian, International Relations Graduate, University of San Francisco

Ussama Makdisi, who was born in Washington, D.C., spent his early years in Lebanon and earned his Ph.D. at Princeton University. He will discuss his latest book, Age of Coexistence: The Ecumenical Frame and the Making of the Modern Arab World, which has been described as an easily accessible, provocative engagement with existing literature about sectarian, secular, colonialism and Arab nationalists. And, although headlines paint the Middle East as a collection of war-torn countries and extremist groups consumed by sectarian rage, Makdisi shows how people of different faiths have tried to build modern societies that transcend religious and sectarian differences.
