Part of the Middle East Librarians Association (MELA) Social Justice Lecture Series 2020-2021 season, Stories and Silences: Research on Race in the Middle East.
February 18th, 2021
Critic Tiffany Bradley will examine art, literature, and photography as tools to explore Middle Eastern communities. She will discuss cultivating a multicultural, multiracial approach to research in the Middle East and North Africa. Her discussion will be informed by critical race theory and her anthropological fieldwork in Nubian communities in Cairo and Palestinians of African descent in Jerusalem. She will also talk about online networks looking at shared histories from a fresh perspective. This interactive session will consider approaches to diversifying studies for academics, researchers, and students.
