Discussion: Through Her Lens: Modern Arab Women Telling Their Stories through Art and Literature
October 11, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Carolina Public Humanities is teaming up with the Ackland Art Museum to explore the ways in which Modern Arab Women are speaking out through art and literature. Celebrate female storytellers with Nadia Yaqub, professor of Asian Studies, in a lively discussion of the 2019 Man Booker International Prize-winning novel Celestial Bodies by Jokha Alharthi, the first female Omani novelist to be translated into English. Carolyn Allmendinger, Ackland’s Director of Academic Programming, will then guide us through their newest exhibition, She Who Tells a Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab World.
