Annual Inaugural Conference (« Dies Academicus ») of POLIS Jerusalem Institute of Languages and Humanities. Friday October 21st, 11:00 AM. 
In Jerusalem, all nationalities and faiths intersect. Many historians limit their studies to only one community, contributing to a segmented historical narrative. Since its launch in 2014, the European Project, which is supported by the European Research Council (ERC), has been working to produce a scientific, connected, and unbiased history of citadinité in Jerusalem from 1840 to 1940. This lecture, given by Vincent Lemire, will discuss the various challenges of the Project along with its new historiographical method as it pertains to the Maghrebi Quarter of Jerusalem. 
• Lecture available in-class and online (link to be sent prior to lecture). To register, please send an email to and specify either online or in-class participation.
