Cairo: A Brief History of an Islamic Metropolis

Tickets to sale to General Public June 6.
General Public $35, Members $32, Students $32, ICT Member $32

This lecture will review the history of Cairo from the 10th century to the present. It will survey the city’s outstanding architecture, encompassing the gamut of Islamic styles as well as every 19th and 20th century Western style and interpret it in light of its urban, cultural, and political setting. Cairo in fact forces us to reconsider the relationship between the city’s character and its architecture and to cast it in a new interpretive framework, which may shed light on many historic cities today.

Aga Khan Professor - Nasser Rabbat - will show how this historic city still shines today as a cultural center of its three spheres of influence: the Arab world, Africa and the Islamic world.

Date: July 15, 2014

Location: Royal Ontario Museum / Signy and Cléophée Eaton Theatre, Level B1, & The Patricia Harris Gallery of Textiles and Costume, Level 4
