Nadine Naber Awarded KIP Project Grant

Apr 26, 2016

The KIP Project at the American University of Beirut has awarded Nadine Naber with a grant for her project, "Sectarianism and National Emergencies: Barriers or Facilitators for Women, Sexual Minorities, and Transgender People?"  The KIP grant is funded by the U.S. State Department and supports research that examines issues related to gender and sexuality with the aim of positively contributing to the empowerment of women and other marginalized groups in Lebanon. Professor Naber's project is an ethnographic study about whether and to what extent moments of intensified sectarianism and nationalism in Lebanon, including military invasions and civil conflicts, have opened up opportunities for creative political reconfigurations by marginalized people, including sexual minorities in Lebanon.
