Teaching resistance and identity in Arab-American poetry Professors at Work

    • Education

Senior lecturer in English and comparative literature Sirene Harb was just honored by the Arab American Book Awards for her publication Articulations of Resistance Transformative Practices in Contemporary Arab-American Poetry. She explains her analyses of Arab-American poets, especially women, who represent their own understandings of time, space, resistance, and identities, often in daring experimental forms of poetry. Arab-American poets’ sentiments and perceptions of themselves in society also frequently link with similar attitudes among African-American and Arab women, especially in racial discrimination.
