IAS Director elected as a member of the CHCI International Academic Advisory Board
In January 2020, IAS Director Prof. Dr. Nadia Al-Bagdadi was elected as a member of the International Advisory Board of the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institues and was welcomed together with three other new members of the Board.
Members of the CHCI International Advisory Board are directors of member organizations selected both for their individual qualifications and the need for intellectual, regional, and institutional representation within the Consortium. Beyond their administrative responsibilities—including the supervision of CHCI finances, grants, staff, and meetings—Board members provide the intellectual leadership that is key to identifying emerging opportunities for international collaborations with a transformative effect on scholarly inquiry and conversation on major issues of public concern in the 21st century. These new members of the CHCI International Advisory Board were selected both for their individual qualifications and the need for intellectual, regional, and institutional representation within the Consortium.
Prof. Dr. Nadia Al-Bagdadi is a historian of modern Islamic history, thought, literature and culture with a particularly focus on Arab nineteenth-century history.
