An Exchange of Minds: Smith College and AUI
In Fall 2017, SHSS Professor Zaynab El Bernoussi participated in an exchange with Smith College. During this time, Dr. El Bernoussi had the opportunity to share her research on dignity—karama—with the Smith College community and help organize a conference entitled “Contemporary Women and Islam: Politics and Identity”. On February 27, Dr/ El Bernoussi shared her experiences with students and faculty alike while also describing an opportunity of mutual growth for both institutions. While Dr. El Bernoussi was at Smith College, AUI had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Bozena Welborne as the HCC Scholar-in-Residence.

AUI is very excited about the Smith College-AUI partnership's future, and is sure that it will continue to bear fruit in years to come.
