On Wednesday, April 7, George Mason University Libraries will host the 2010 Fenwick Fellow Lecture at 2 p.m. in the Johnson Center, Room A, on the Fairfax Campus.

Amal Amireh, associate professor of postcolonial literature in the Department of English, will present “Between Nationalism and Globalization: Representations of Arab Masculinity in Arab Popular Culture.”

Amireh’s Fenwick Fellow Lecture aims to describe and explain a shift in Arab body politics. The talk will spotlight her research on the ways femininity and masculinity are culturally constructed and deployed in Arabic literature and film as essential components of a discourse on globalization, war and empire.

A reception will follow the lecture. RSVP to or call 703-993-2251.
