Biographical Notes

Rasha Moumneh earned her M.A. in anthropology from UCL in 2004, and has since been working in social justice movements primarily in Lebanon, but also in the Arab region more generally. Her activism was focused on building alternative queer and feminist movements and on Palestine solidarity work. After having spent four years employed in an international human rights organization, she went back to graduate school to think about the intersections of international law, the production of minorities, and displacement and nation-making in the Middle East.

WGS Statement on Academia and Free Speech Rights

It is inherent to the discipline of Women's Studies to deal with complex subjects through theoretical lenses, which question conventional knowledge production. This department, one of the most distinguished departments of WGS in the country, has a highly visible faculty of national and international reputation invited to speak in various fora on sometimes highly controversial subjects. Such faculty members, as scholars, have not only a right, but also an obligation to produce and disseminate knowledge within and beyond the academy. Moreover, as private citizens, our faculty continue to enjoy the same freedoms of speech and expression as any private citizen and in accordance with university policy the department supports their protection from institutional discipline in the exercise of these academic and free speech rights.
