NEWS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDIES STUDENTS -- 2-20-19

  1. Let's Talk about the Middle East, Feb. 21. Film showing ("The Insult") and discussion led by Dr. Leena Dallasheh at The Minor Theater (1001 H Street, Arcata). Special screening with the lead actor, Kamel al-Basha! Thursday, Feb. 21, 7 p.m. Cost $9.50. Twenty-five years after the Lebanese civil war, its wounds linger. In today’s Beirut, a small incident between a Palestinian refugee, Yasser (Kamel al-Basha), and a Lebanese-Christian, Tony, turns into a complicated trial, in which the personal becomes political. Competing narratives and mutual accusations of that war are laid out to show, as one lawyer states, “no one has a monopoly on suffering.” View the Facebook event here.

Dr. Barbara Curiel (English and CRGS) is a specialist in Chicano and Latino studies, and is a bilingual speaker attentive to borderlands cultures and identities.
