Title of Event: 711-2011: East meets West

Event Description: In the year 711 Tariq ibn Ziyad crossed the Straits of Gibraltar and put into motion what arguably would become the fusion between two distinct worlds. This year marks the 1300th anniversary of the historical circumstances that brought the eastern and western worlds into contact. We would like to use this moment as a point of departure to reflect on the legacies and ramifications of that historical event.
