World Notice

Nada Shabout’s work is gaining notice across the world. This spring, she plans to serve as a visiting assistant professor at MIT, where she will teach two courses on modern Arab art and work with doctoral students studying the subject. She also earned a Fulbright Scholar grant to teach a course in contemporary Arab art history at the University of Jordan in Amman in Fall 2008.

Her book, Modern Arab Art: Formation of Arab Aesthetics, is due to be published in October, and the Fulbright grant will allow her to start research on a second book related to contemporary Arab art.

For her research on missing Iraqi art, she has received two $10,000 grants from the American Academic Research Institute in Iraq.
