Building Bridges Symposium 2022

The Building Bridges Symposium 2022 is the latest in a series of successful symposiums run by the Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education.

This particular event next Thursday will be focussing on the fascinating and largely unknown history of Arabic poetry fragments found in the eminent Cairo Genizah. 

These fragments of ancient poetry constitute a unique source for understanding Medieval and Early-Modern Egypt from three main perspectives: Arabic studies, Jewish social and cultural studies, and anthropological studies.

The 2022 Symposium will feature a keynote speech on the Cairo Genizah, presentations with panel discussions, and an exhibition.

The event is free, although spaces are limited so please follow this link to register your attendance at
