Nabil Matar

The seminar examines various forms of interactions between Arabs and Europeans in the early modern period. Based on Arabic sources from Aleppo, Paris, Meknes, and Moscow, Professor Matar focuses on a number of case studies relating to political history, personal relationships, and travel experiences. From ambassadors to priests and jurists, Arabs wrote about their views of the French, the Russians, and other nationalities.
