Global Studies Center Hosts Professor Olivier Hanne


Kuwait City, 4 January 2022: The Global Studies Center (GSC) at Gulf University for Science and Technology (GUST) hosted Professor of History at the Military Academy of Saint-Cyr, Professor Olivier Hanne for a lecture on zoom titled “Translations of the Quran in Europe between the 12th and 17th centuries.” The lecture presented to the audience gave examples of how literal and direct the translations of the Quran were and questioned if it helped portray the overall meaning of each “surah”.


The GSC has held several lectures already this academic year from a wide variety of topics. Whether on Spanish literature or on African-American Muslim communities, the GSC brings topics from various fields of research to GUST and is a testament to their effort in providing a rich learning culture for the community.
