Arabs in America’s Fairs in 1876-1896
NC State’s Moise A. Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies hosted Dr. Linda K. Jacobs for a lecture about who shared her current research with a packed room of eager audience members. Her presentation, “Creating Illusions: Arabs in America’s Fairs, 1876-1896,” discussed the role of Syrian performers, merchants, and travelers at world’s fairs in the late nineteenth-century. After her talk, Dr. Jacobs answered questions from the audience. Her talk explores Arab participation in world exhibition and fairs (attended by nearly 50 million Americans) and the effects these experiences had on early Arab immigration and immigrants in nineteenth century America.
