Alumni Activities: Hala Auji


Hala Auji (PhD, 2013) was recently invited to speak at Pepperdine University as part of Payson Library’s NEH-funded “Bridging Cultures” series, and also presented her work at the Historians of Islamic Art Majlis in New Orleans on October 10.

In December, with the support of a Houghton Mifflin Visiting Fellowship in Publishing History, Hala will begin research on printed Arabic ephemera at Harvard University’s Houghton Library for her book manuscript, Typesetting Modernity: The American Missionary Press and the Rise of Print Culture in the Arab World, which expands upon themes from her dissertation. She will also be teaching a course in Islamic art at UCLA in the spring of 2014.
