The Middle East Center hosts a wide range of public events, including lectures, cultural events, film festivals, panel discussions, and interactive workshops. All of our events are free and open to the public, unless otherwise specified.
Please note: in accordance with the University of Pennsylvania's current COVID-19 guidelines, the Middle East Center is planning to begin holding events again in person. It is MANDATORY for all attendees to wear masks. Physical distancing will be observed. All attendees must sign a special event sign-in sheet, attesting that they have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or are a Penn community member enrolled in the Penn Cares testing program. We will continue to monitor CDC, city, and university guidelines and will move our events online if it is deemed necessary for the protection and safety of our community.
