Lecture by Suad Joseph: Rethinking Arab Women as "Subjects"
Suad Joseph was born in Lebanon and educated in the US. She completed her Ph.D. in Anthropology at Columbia University. Most of her anthropological field research has focused on her native Lebanon. Her early work investigated the politicization of religious sects in Lebanon leading up to the civil war in 1975, questions of ethnicity and state, and local community organization and development. That work led her to consider the impact of women's visiting networks on local and national politics, and the relationships between local communities, community organizations, and the state.
