Shirelle Maya Doughty, Ph.D. student in Near Eastern studies, explores the intersections between Israeli and Palestinian cinemas to interrogate how filmmakers negotiate critical stances toward nationalism with expectations and desires that they represent "the nation." This event is part of the conference "Digital Near Eastern Studies: Transforming the Humanities Through Technology," which takes place from 10 a.m. to noon in 254 Barrows Hall. All are welcome.
