Roll, Couscous, Roll!

Wednesday, April 2

Time: 1pm to 3pm

Location: Knox Hall Room 403 (606 West 122nd Street)

The transformation of agriculture under French colonial rule in Algeria was the basis for the making of a colonial culture there. But should we agree with French colonists that couscous was an essential component of North African culture? A historian Ramzi Rouighi, Associate Professor of History at the University of Southern California, explains.

As space is limited, people will be accommodated on a first-come-first-served basis.

This event is part of the Ifriqiyya Public Lectures and is sponsored by the Institute of African Studies and the Department of Middle Eastern, South Asian and African Studies (MESAAS).
