At the juncture of Africa, Europe, and Asia, the Middle East boasts deserts, mountains, steppes, valleys and river deltas. Across the region diverse mammals, reptiles, birds, and insects, as well as marine organisms and invertebrates, make their homes. The workshop “Middle Eastern Animals: Interdisciplinary Perspectives from Early Modern to Contemporary Times” will focus on this diversity and explore the role non-human animals have played throughout the history of the Middle East.

The conference, entitled "Perspectives on French Colonial and Late Ottoman Cultural History,” is honoring the work of acclaimed architectural historian Zeynep Çelik who will be awarded the
