Listening Party, Michigan

  • pin 10th floor Weiser Hall, 500 Church St, Ann Arbor, MI 48109 (map)

On Tuesday, February 12th, 2019, The University of Michigan Global Islamic Studies Center will be hosting a Kerning Cultures listening party in 1010 Weiser Hall. We will listen to the episode 'Where The Heart Is" and discuss it into the night with their Marketing Lead, Bella Ibrahim.

In this episode, we follow Maysam’s story. For his entire life, Maysam has lived in Dubai. His parents are from Syria, a place he hasn’t visited since he was a young child. If you ask him, the UAE is his home. But on paper it isn’t, and likely never will be. So what happens when the only place you know as home in your heart can’t be your home forever?.

Come with your thoughts, questions, or just come with a friend. We'll take care of the rest (including some light refreshments). The event is free and open to the public, RSVP at http://myumi.ch/J9DzE. Light refreshments will be provided.

If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend this event, please reach out to islamicstudies@umich.edu as soon as you can. Please be aware that advance notice is necessary as some accommodations may require more time for the university to arrange.
