The MBI Al Jaber Lecture Series 2017/18

The MBI Al Jaber Foundation will be hosting its fourth lecture series during the 2017-18 academic year, after the completion of three very successful and interesting programmes. The lectures will be held at the MBI Al Jaber Building, London Middle East Institute, SOAS at 5.45pm on the third Thursday of the month from October 2017 to June 2018 (excluding December). As usual, they will cover an exciting range of topics including the media, politics, archaeology, architecture, art and culture of the Middle East and North Africa region, reflecting the three areas (education, good governance and cultural dialogue) in which the Foundation operates. Our speakers, highly regarded academics, journalists, political commentators and archaeologists, will include Shane Stevenson, Oxfam’s Country Director for Yemen; Chris Doyle, Director of the Council for Arab British Understanding (CAABU) and Dr Paul Collins, Chair of the British Institute for the Study of Iraq (BISI).

The first lecture, co-hosted with the British Foundation for the Study of Arabia (BFSA) and entitled “A return to Arabian art and architecture in Cairo at the beginning of the 20th century: the patronage of Prince Mohammed Ali Twefik”, will be held on October 19th, 2017 and presented by Dr Sami de Giosa from the University of Oxford. Sami is the current Barakat Fellow at the Khalili Research Centre (KRC), and previously worked at the British Museum as a project curator. He completed his PhD in Islamic art at SOAS with a thesis on the revival of art and architecture in Cairo under Sultan Qaytbay in the late Mamluk period.

We look forward to seeing you there!
