American University of Beirut

The Center for American Studies and Research (CASAR)
  • Promoting the production of knowledge about transnational connections between the Americas, the Middle East, and the world.

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​At the Alwaleed Center for American Studies and Re​search (CASAR) we adopt a unique, interdisciplinary approach to American S​tudies which foregrounds historical, cultural, and political links between the United States and the Middle East. The students, scholars, and communities that we work with are encouraged to research and think across disciplines, ranging from the humanities to the h​​​​​ard sciences, thus creating opportunities to reach beyond the traditional disciplinary boundaries of our field. Located in vibrant and deeply transnational Beirut, Lebanon, and engaged in a range of activities across academia and the arts, CASAR focuses on teaching​​, research, and community outreach in order to offer an eclectic and exemplary hub for work in the field of American studies.
