By EHESS Exchange Faculty Dr. Jocelyne Dakhlia

Join us for a talk by Dr. Jocelyne Dakhlia, visiting faculty through the faculty exchange between UT Austin and the EHESS (École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales) in Paris, France.

Dr. Dakhlia's talk will discuss "Invisible Strangers: Muslims in Early Modern France and Britain, 1500-1800"

The contribution made by Muslims to the development of Western Europe is much greater than previously thought.  This talk will examine a recent body of collaborative research that brings this history of Muslims in Europe out of the shadows.  It will also consider the reasons why previous historians have passed this history over in silence, looking in particular at Britain and France.  A new understanding of Western Europe and the Mediterranean emerges from this work, one with important civic and geopolitical ramifications for the present.
