with Seth Anziska, the Mohamed S. Farsi-Lindenbaum Associate Professor of Jewish-Muslim Relations at University College, London, where he is the founding director of the Middle East Research Centre.
Thursday, March 21, 2024 - 12:30-2:30 - A public talk with catered reception at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) Marcia and John Price Museum Building at the University of Utah
