Event Description:

Ghenwa Hayek, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of Modern Arabic Literature in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. Her research focuses on the entangled relationships between literary and cultural production, space and place and identity formation from the 19th century to the present. Hayek's presentation investigates the use of the graphic narrative to depict the July War between Hezbollah paramilitary forces and the Israel Defense Forces in 2006. Using this comic form's hybridity of the verbal and the visual, Lebanese artists framed the 2006 war in complex ways to challenge dominant thinking about violence.

This lecture is free and open to the public.

Sponsored by Global Studies Program and a UISFL grant from the Department of Education.
