Episode 6 examines four stories of cultural confrontation: Chinatown in San Francisco, Jerusalem during the Ottoman Empire, Iran’s Jewish community on the eve of the revolution, and the creolized Island of Mauritius. With each story, scholars will discuss the attempts — some successful, some decidedly not — to preserve cultural identity while engaging in processes of transformation and cooperation across ethnic and religious lines.
