The AUB Libraries, Archives Department, is pleased to announce the launch of the online exhibit: “Constantine Zurayk: Knowledge at the Service of Life“. The exhibit was curated on the 150th anniversary of AUB in conjunction with a seminar, entitled “Seminar in Remembrance of Constantine Zurayk”, which took place at AUB on October 31st, 2016. It showcases select items from the archive of Dr. Zurayk (1909- 2000), which was generously donated to the AUB Libraries, Archives Department, by Dr. Zurayk’s family. The documents, photos and letters on display here provide a glimpse onto the multi-faceted personality and rich life that Dr. Zurayk led, as well as onto some aspects of the socio-cultural and political context of a formative period in Arab modern history. The exhibit also contains excerpts from oral history interviews with Dr. Zurayk, as well as a link to the introduction of the Seminar.
We hope you enjoy!
