  Something Supernatural: Tales of the Jinn  
(Special Event)

Across time and space, there are references to the existence of beings referred to as jinns. Dr. Ali A. Olomi, Assistant Professor of History at Loyola Marymount University, will discuss the origins of the jinn. and different cultural and religious conceptions of these creatures. Throughout, he will also share tales featuring jinns and their interactions with humans across the globe. Farida Jalalzai will moderate. This is the first installment of a new webinar series that explores a variety of supernatural phenomena worldwide. Blending academic discussion with story-telling, we delve into specific cultural expressions of the supernatural as well as shared elements among various societies. Are such stories evidence of our shared humanity? Do they speak more to cultural specificity? Or are we dealing with something as inexplicable as the supernatural itself? Join us for such probing questions and chilling tales!
