Using Archives in Teaching the History of the Lebanese Diaspora -

The Centre for Lebanese Studies and A. Moise Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies at North Carolina State University are organizing a workshop about ” Using Archives in Teaching the History of the Lebanese Diaspora” on Saturday March 03, 2018 at the Lebanese American University Beirut Campus from 9:00 a.m. till 5:00 p.m. The participation fee for this workshop is LBP 40,000.

The workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Akram Khater, the Director of Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies.

The workshop will look at the causes and process of migration, its effects on gender, class and race, and finally how these transformations were carried back to Lebanon by the returning immigrants. It  seeks to accomplish two things:

-First, it will transcend the myths and begin to shed some light on the complex history of early Lebanese migration (1880-1940).

-Second, it will seek to integrate the history of migration and diaspora into the history of Lebanon arguing that the two are intimately linked and that one cannot understand Lebanon without learning about its immigrants and how their experiences transformed their lives and their home country.

Practitioners from the education sector , interested to attend, can confirm their attendance by sending an email to Mayssa Achkar on the following address : info@lebanesestudies.com and settle the participation fee before February 21,2018 .
