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.

All afikra questions: (1) explore a topic related to Arab history or culture, (2) are non-promotional (don’t promote the speaker, their opinions, or their business), and (3) are deep enough to fuel a 45 minute discussion.

Here is the archive of past topics.

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