The Jews of Lebanon

salamehAssociate Professor of Near Eastern Studies Franck Salameh has published an article in the Journal of the Middle East and Africa that mines an early history of modern Lebanon by placing a special focus on the country’s Jewish community and examining inter-Lebanese relations where Lebanese Jews had once taken center stage. He gives special consideration to the “rise” and “fall” of Lebanese Jewry during the first half of the 20th century as a group that was uniquely Lebanese and, in that sense, uniquely distinct from other Lebanese and other Jews elsewhere in the Middle East. Salameh is the author of the books, Language Memory and Identity in the Middle East: The Case for Lebanon, Charles Corm: An Intellectual Biography of a Twentieth-Century Lebanese “Young Phoenician,” and the forthcoming The Other Middle East: An Anthology of Modern Levantine Literature.
