An FPRI Event:
A History of Muslims, Christians, and Jews in the Middle East

October 10, 2017 @ 6:15 pm - 7:30 pm

This event is part of the FPRI* ongoing series Geopolitics with Granieri

NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE: Lecture will be held at the MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, 101 S. 3rd St., Phila., PA (one block down, across the street from NLM). Dinner for Bronze Partners of FPRI will be held at NLM.

Geopolitics with Granieri features a conversation – some might say an interrogation – with guest scholars on subjects in the news. Moderated by FPRI’s Ron Granieri, each session draws upon FPRI’s vast network of scholars and outside experts to elicit a broader understanding of the geographical, political, and historical context of current events. This uniquely interactive program, produced in front of a live audience, offers real substance and emphasizes active audience participation from both the studio and the live YouTube audience.     *Foreign Policy Research Institute

In this session, Heather Sharkey discusses her new book from Cambridge University Press, which explores the history of day-to-day relations between Muslims, Christians, and Jews in the Middle East, a region once marked by great diversity that is today largely absent. In doing so, she unearths a past poorly understood while offering perspective on today’s conflict-riven region.

An award-winning teacher at the University of Pennsylvania, Sharkey received her Ph.D. in history from Princeton University.

Registration begins at 6:15 pm, with the program to follow from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.

Reservations are required. RSVP to Rachel Hemler:
FREE for members of FPRI (and their spouses) at $100 Level and NLM members;
$10 for non-members
Dinner immediately following for Bronze Partners of FPRI.
