Arab Contemporary Political Thought: Secularist or Theologist?

Tuesday, November 17

Time: 6:30pm 

Location: Wood Auditorium, 1172 Amsterdam Avenue

George Corm's recent publication Pensée et politique dans le monde arabe is a fascinating and important archive which reconstitutes two centuries of Arab intellectual engagement with modernity through literature, art, architecture and political thought. The lecture follows on the themes of last fall's Architecture and Representation: the Arab City.

Response by Fadi Bardiwel, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
