On the Meaning of Place: A Walk Through the Old City 

Jerusalem is a layered tapestry of communities, each with its own story. Matthew Teller’s book Nine Quarters of Jerusalem gives voice to these diverse populations. From historical chronicles to present narratives, it interweaves stories from Palestinian Arab and Jewish Israeli communities, as well as African, Indian, Greek, Armenian, and Syriac societies, and Gypsy families and Sufi mystics, too. This exploration fosters an intimate understanding of place through the myriad voices of Jerusalem’s Old City. 

Speaker
Matthew Teller, Journalist; Author of "Nine Quarters of Jerusalem: A New Biography of the Old City" (Other Press, 2022)
