American Studies Exchange
The Brandeis/Al-Quds partnership enabled four American studies graduate students and one professor from Al-Quds to visit Brandeis and Washington, D.C.
Professor Mohammed Dajani and four students -- Zeina Barakat, Eliana Zeidan Berkley, Dalia Labadi and Urieb Samad -- spent two weeks at Brandeis, where they attended American studies lectures and classes and met Brandeis faculty and students. They participated in a public celebration on March 29, which included a photo exhibition, Palestinian food and Middle Eastern music.
Because they were in the midst of researching their theses, the students also participated in Brandeis library orientations and spent substantial time researching their theses and meeting with faculty members and other students.
