Do you know what algebra has to do with the Arabic language and what is dimiskia? The answers to these and many other questions about things we know but are not sure where they come from and what they mean are hidden in the immense cultural wealth of the Arab world. Through the lecture series ARAB PEOPLES AND COUNTRIES, we will get acquainted with the geographically close, colourful landscape of Arab peoples and countries. We will learn hitherto unknown facts about the identity, spirituality, and daily life of Arabs.
