CMS Seminar Series

Date: December 2, 2020 @ 3:00pm – 4:15pm

Venue: Online Event

Speaker: Ali Houissa Curator

Open to: Free and open to the public

The Comparative Muslim Society Program (CMS) builds bridges across disciplines and borders for better understanding of Muslim cultures and societies.

The CMS seminar will be led by the curator of the Middle Eastern Collection in Olin Library, who will be hosting us to see precious objects in the library’s collection about Islam.  We have many world-class books, some of them centuries old, which show the history and evolution of Islam over a long period, and across many cultures.  This is a wonderful opportunity to see some of the treasures of Cornell’s collection that are rarely seen, and which span centuries of time and thousands of miles of geography in Islamic lands, from Morocco to Indonesia.
