The Emergence of Sectarianism in the Modern Middle East

“Born in the Global Nineteenth Century: The Emergence of Sectarianism in the Modern Middle East.”
Eleanor Roosevelt College Admin. Bldg. (ERC), Room 115.
Ussama Makdisi’s talk draws from his new book project on the history of sectarianism in the modern Middle East (beginning in the 19th Century), when questions of citizenship and equality came to the fore to challenge long-standing imperial notions of Ottoman Muslim supremacy.
