Welcome to the Khayrallah Program for Lebanese-American Studies at North Carolina State University. Thanks to a generous gift by Dr. Moise & Mrs. Vera Khayrallah, this program was established in 2010 to research, preserve  and publicize the history of the Lebanese-American community in North Carolina and the South from its earliest days in the 1880s through today.

To accomplish these goals we are collecting interviews with descendants of first, second and third generation Lebanese-Americans. In addition, we are collecting digital copies of photos, letters, books, home movies, audio recordings and other memorabilia from members of the Lebanese-American community that will help us tell the story of this community. All this material, and other items are archived digitally on line and made available to the general public and researchers though our archive, newsletter, films, museum exhibit, K-12 curriculum, online resources, blog and other media of public history.

In addition, the Khayrallah Center works to advance scholarship on the Lebanese Diaspora in the United States and across the world. For that purpose we publish a peer-reviewed academic journal, hold scholarly conferences, publish books, train Ph.D. students and provide research fellowships in the arts and humanities.

We hope that you will take a moment to register with us to receive updates about our programs, that you will peruse our various projects and resources, and help us advance our mission by donating to the center.
