Building Bridges Symposium 2022

Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education is pleased to announce the latest Building Bridges Symposium.

Due to take place on the 17th November 2022, this Symposium will feature a keynote speech on the Cairo Genizah, presentations with panel discussions, and an exhibition.


About the Event:

The research project ‘Arabic Poetry in the Cairo Genizah’ (APCG) investigates for the first time a hitherto neglected collection of Arabic poetry fragments written in Hebrew script (in Judaeo-Arabic), which has been preserved in arguably the most important Jewish treasure trove: the Cairo Genizah.

The fragments, numbered in the hundreds, constitute a unique source for understanding Medieval and Early Modern Egypt from three main perspectives: Arabic studies, Jewish social and cultural studies, and anthropological studies.


The latest in a series of successful Symposiums hosted by the College, this event is not to be missed.
