Welcome to Moise A. Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies!
Welcome to Moise A. Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies! In 2010 Dr. Moise Khayrallah funded a pilot project to research, preserve and publicize the history of the Lebanese in North Carolina. This initiative led to the production of a PBS documentary, the design and installation of a museum exhibit, the development of an online digital archive and a K-12 curriculum. Building on this foundation. Dr. Khayrallah endowed a center that would extend the same goals to a broader geography. Thus, the Moise A. Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies was established as a research and outreach center for the production and dissemination of knowledge about the Lebanese Diaspora in the US and throughout the world. The Khayrallah Center is a program of NC State's College of Humanities and Social Sciences. The Khayrallah Center fosters new scholarship on the historical and contemporary Lebanese Diaspora in all of its dimensions: social, political, economic and cultural.
