Description

Due to concerns relating to COVID-19 and an attempt to help contain the spread of the virus, we are canceling the Farhat J. Ziadeh Distinguished Lecture in Arab and Islamic Studies scheduled for April 8, 2020. We are disappointed to have to come to this decision. We look forward to working with Professor Nasr to reschedule his visit at a later date.
