September 18, 2016

A reception will be held October 28 to celebrate the recent publication of the following books by NU-Q faculty and staff:

Representing the Nation: Heritage, Museums, National Narratives and Identity in the Gulf States
Edited by Pamela Erskine-Loftus, Victoria Penziner Hightower and Mariam Ibrahim Al-Mulla

Representing the Nation is a timely and important collection of essays that, while considering the entire Gulf region, provide the contextualization necessary in order to understand how museums are being harnessed to recreate a past that is disconnected from younger generations; to reinforce present affluence and achievements; and, to represent new models of national identity. Covering the nation-building efforts of the 70s up to the contemporary, branded museums, particularly in Abu Dhabi and Doha, this volume is essential reading.”
- Dr. Jane Bristol-Rhys, Zayed University, Abu Dhabi, UAE

Approaches to Teaching the Plays of August Wilson
Edited by Sandra G. Shannon and Sandra L. Richards (Modern Language Association, 2016)

“I am delighted with the range and quality of essays in this volume from established heavy hitters and exciting younger scholars. They are full of valuable perspectives and insights on a broad
selection of Wilson’s plays that will register with both teachers and students.”
- Steven Tracy, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

The Ink of the Sun
By Khaled AL-Hroub

The book is a journey of personal reflections and anecdotes about Palestine, the people, the places, the experiences and the diaspora. Straddling poetry and prose and mostly apolitical, the text intends to unravel the beauty of untold normalcy of Palestine and the Palestinians.
