NEW TEMPLATE


Humanities Washington serves as a magnet, a master chef, and a bully pulpit for the Humanities in our state. We all benefit from their ability to bring new voices and new perspectives to the forefront. The rich and vibrant culture we are weaving each day in our state owes a great deal to their encouragement and support of scholars, writers, teachers, and artists throughout Washington.

Think & Drink: Unveiled: Feminism, Orientalism, and Perceptions of the Middle East

SEATTLE –In collaboration with ACT Theatre, Humanities Washington will host “Unveiled: Feminism, Orientalism, and Perceptions of the Middle East” on June 8 at 7:00 p.m. at Greenwood’s Naked City Brewery and Taphouse. Think & Drink events are hosted conversations in pubs and tasting rooms on provocative topics and new ideas, and are free and open to the public. From dramatic events like the attempted murder of Malala Yousafzai to the everyday wearing of the hijab in many parts of the Middle East, the lens through which the West views Middle Eastern women is often focused on their oppression—either real or perceived. How accurate is this lens? Where do our views of the Middle East come from? And what does modern Middle Eastern feminism look like? “Unveiled” is presented in collaboration with ACT Theatre’s production of Threesome, a play featuring two Egyptian Americans attempting to solve their relationship issues, and touching on issues of sexism, possession, and liberation. The Think & Drink event will feature award-winning playwright of Threesome Yussef El Guindi and professor of Middle Eastern Studies and Comparative Religion at The Evergreen State College Sarah Eltantawi. The discussion will be moderated by Zaki Barak Hamid, program director at Humanities Washington and Middle Eastern film instructor at Edmonds Community College. The event is sponsored by KUOW.
