hosts / Nadya Sbaiti

Nadya Sbaiti specializes in the social and cultural histories of the modern Middle East. She is currently working on a book manuscript titled "Gender, Education, and Nation in Mandate Lebanon," (forthcoming), which examines the central role of education to the formation of multiple national narratives and the production of history in Lebanon under French mandate. Additional research interests include spatial manifestations of colonial and national projects, colonial methods of social control through prisons and asylums, the production of history as both discursive and material practice, tourism and heritage, and contemporary popular culture (music, film, game shows and reality television). Sbaiti has served as co-editor of the peer-reviewed Arab Studies Journal since 2005, and she helped produce the acclaimed documentary film About Baghdad (2004).
