CMES Director Sherene Seikaly (History)
Has received a prestigious fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities. She will be working on her book From Baltimore to Beirut: On the Question of Palestine that charts the trajectory of her great-grandfather Naim Cotran (c. 1877-1961) from nineteenth century mobility across Baltimore and Sudan to twentieth century immobility in Lebanon. The book places the question of Palestine in a global history of race, capital, slavery, and dispossession.
