Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys 2014
Connected Histories Discussion Series
Sunday afternoons, 2 pm
Join us for discussions on readings that introduce a way of understanding the past in which Islam and the West are seen as products of a shared, cosmopolitan, and inextricably intertwined past. Register for the "Let's Talk About It" book discussions at the Reference Desk 215-723-9109, ext. 3.
Cathlyn Mariscotti (Professor of History at Holy Family College) will lead four of the discussions and Tom Kolsky (Professor of History at MCCC) will lead the March 16 discussion.
