Lama Alharbi (English instructor and PhD candidate at the Composition and TESOL program) was invited in January 2018 for a two-day visit that involved two workshop sessions on “The Critical Discourse Analysis and the Rhetoric of Social Justice: Towards Effective
Rhetorical Analysis Practices.” Alharbi also co-presented “The ‘Exotic Other’: A Poetic Autoethnography of Two Muslim Teachers in Higher Education” with Samah Elbelazi (Stanford University).
The presentation was followed by a poetic autoethnography writing workshop where they practiced and discussed using poetry as a healing method for engendered and traumatized students.
The talks and workshops were sponsored by Stanford’s Program in Writing
and Rhetoric and Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies.
