European cultural diplomacy and Arab Christians in Palestine: A connected history

This 5-year research project proposes a connected history of the Arab Christian communities in Palestine during the formative years of the Middle East (1920 - 1950) and the birth of cultural diplomacy. 

By means of an interdisciplinary approach, it will investigate the relationship between the European cultural agenda and the local formation process, and social and religious transformations of Arab Christian communities in Palestine.
