An authority on urban sociology and Middle Eastern politics, Yasser Munif will share his perspective on the roots of the civil war in Syria. Munif is a scholar-in-residence at Emerson College, where he specializes in colonial history, racial identities, and the production of postcolonial space in former French colonial territories. His research explores the role of artistic transgressions within public spaces in challenging the deference and violence of totalitarian regimes. He is currently working on a book chapter on the relevance of revolutionary philosopher Franz Fanon in the context of the Syrian uprising.
