Cities of the Arab World: Theory, Investigation and Critique - 2 Day Event  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

The Global Urban Studies Program, the Department of Anthropology and the Muslim
Studies Program are pleased to announce an interdisciplinary conference entitled Cities
of the Arab World: Theory, Investigation and Critique, to be held February 14-15,
2019, at the Michigan State University Student Union. Conference panelists, from the
Middle East, Europe and the United States, will address a number of topics including
environmental issues in Arab cities, the contributions of ethnic and religious minorities
to urban life, the political economy of redevelopment and questions of civil conflict and
post-conflict reconstruction. The inclusion of cities with significant Arab populations
outside the Middle East enables exploration of questions of coexistence and conflict,
and of the rich cultural production that globalization makes possible.

The conference keynote speakers will be Harvey Molotch, emeritus professor of
social and cultural analysis and sociology, New York University and Mona Fawaz,
professor of architecture and sesign, faculty of engineering and design, American
University of Beirut
