Prof. Camelia Suleiman
Armed conflicts impact individuals of diverse social locations in different ways. While women are often depicted as victims and in need of protection, the reality is often rather different. This coming Monday (Dec 16, 2019) brings the opportunity to look into the lived experiences of four women whose everyday reality is shaped by Armed Conflicts and the ways in which they work in order to make better lives for themselves and their respective communities.
In her talk Women Rewriting the Nation: A Comparative Study of Jordanian and Palestinian Feminist Writing (http://bit.ly/WomenRewritingtheNation) Prof. Camelia Suleiman juxtapose the writing of the Palestinian Sahar Khalifa, with that of the Jordanian, Samiha Khreis. Comparing their creative responses to the violence of the state sheds light on the identity struggles in the two Arab communities.
