Fadi A. Bardawil joined the Department of Asian Studies at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill last autumn as an assistant professor of contemporary Arab cultures after spending three years as a Harper Fellow at the University of Chicago’s Society of Fellows. His writings have appeared, and are forthcoming, in the Journal for Palestine Studies (Arabic edition), Boundary 2, Jadaliyya, Kulturaustausch, and the daily newspaper al-Akhbar.

Palestine at/without the Museum: Loss, Metaphor and Emancipation is a seminar that invites intellectual and cultural historians Elias Sanbar (Palestine/France) and Fadi Bardawil (Lebanon), curator Catherine David (France) and artist Alfredo Jaar (Chile) to reflect on the key questions raised by the documentary and archival exhibition Past Disquiet: Narratives and Ghosts from The International Art Exhibition for Palestine, conceived to mediate and incarnate the research around The International Art Exhibition for Palestine of 1978.
