The Middle East Archive Project

Thursday, February 24, 2022 - 12:00pm
Online

The Arab World has been framed in many diverging ways, often lacking the truth in identity. Over time, photographers have shared their own perspective, sometimes influenced by their own understanding of the culture. However, very few have immortalized or shared its true essence, helping the culture synthetically come to life through the simplest moments. This lack of an authentic eye has reached a turning point, opening possibilities for a new sense of collective memory and identity.

Middle Eastern Women: Diverse and Amazing Role Models

Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - 12:00pm

Description: One of the biggest mistakes we make as writers, teachers, and storytellers is to show our audiences only perfect role models. This is off-putting to everyone, not just to young women. Research urges us again and again to show that the success achieved by role models should be attainable and replicable. That’s why the women in Wafa’ Tarnowska’s book Amazing Women of the Middle East are not perfect. They are not only queens or princesses. They come from all walks of life and from many parts of the Middle East.
