A is for Arab: Stereotypes in U.S. Popular Culture

LAU New York

LAU’s New York Academic Center is organizing “Arabs in the Media,” a series of events in collaboration with the American University of Beirut, between April 7 and May 4. The project aims to dispel stereotypes and promote cross-cultural understanding through exhibitions, lectures, film showings, and poetry readings reflecting the Arab-American experiences.

“A is for Arab” is a special traveling exhibit drawn from the Jack G. Shaheen Archive at New York University. It reveals representations of Arabs and Muslims in U.S. popular culture from the early 20th century to the present.

Dr. Jack G. Shaheen will be speaking on April 8 at the same location.
