The Middle Eastern Studies Program and GPII are excited to host Dr. Zeynep Arda for an in-person event titled: “Breaking Bread: An Intercultural Conversation.” This workshop aims at creating an intercultural conversation that starts with the simple act of breaking bread together. Centered around the most basic of all food, one that is as old as history itself and one that cuts through all the cultures of the world, we kindly ask you to bring your favorite loaf (from your country of origin if relevant). While we have some multimedia artworks to share with you, you are highly encouraged to bring in photographs, recordings, paraphernalia and other items you feel is personally relevant.
Come join us on a simple earth table and share stories of identity and culture. Sharing a meal with someone is one of the simplest, yet the strongest acts of starting a touchpoint, a connection, and hopefully, a deep conversation.
Event is free and open to the public.
