Rabab Abdulhadi, the scheduled speaker for tonight's Fisher Center lecture, is unable to come because of poor weather conditions in New York City.
Abdulhadi is an assistant professor/faculty fellow at New York University and teaches in the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. Her doctoral dissertation in sociology was on “Palestinianness in Comparative Perspective: Inclusionary Resistance, Exclusionary Citizenship” (Yale University, 2000), and involved a comparative study of the changed meaning of Palestinianness before and after the creation of Palestinian self-rule areas in parts of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Abdulhadi has served as a special TOKTEN consultant to the United Nations Development Program, Jerusalem. Previously she taught at the American University in Cairo, Egypt.
