Archive of Past Questions

Let’s explore the other rooms of the house… 

We encourage members of the afikra community to explore questions related to Arab history and culture that they find fascinating. The topics can range from poetry to pop culture, from culinary traditions to scientific discoveries. The goal is to encourage each other to exercise our curiosity muscle and share our nerdiness with the community.

The only criteria for a topic would be that (1) it was related to Arab history and culture, (2) it was interesting enough to carry a 45 minutes discussion, and (3) it was not promotional (whether self-promotional or politically/commercially promotional).

Here is the archive of past topics.

Note: slides, audio & video are not available for all talks.
