Fridays at Newcomb: Asmaa Mansour

Uptown Campus
Diboll Gallery, The Commons 3rd Floor

"Toward an Arab Woman Conocimiento: A Psycho-Sexual Political Approach to Memoirs of a Woman Doctor (1957) and Walking through Fire (2002)"

Asmaa Mansour is a bilingual scholar/postdoctoral fellow in English and Arabic at Tulane University in the MENA Studies Program. Prior coming to Tulane, Dr. Mansour received her Ph.D. in English from The University of Texas at San Antonio in May 2021. Her forthcoming book project entitled Toward a Chicana Decolonial Reading of Autobiographical Writings by Egyptian Women, 1950s-Present constitutes the first decolonial reading of Arabic literature and Arabic autobiography in particular and fills a significant gap in research that deals with Chicana-Arab coalitional politics.

Fridays at Newcomb is a free lunch and lecture series featuring speakers across disciplines. Please note that non-Tulane guests must provide either proof of vaccination OR a negative PCR COVID-19 test that was taken within the past 72 hours.
