Arab Visionaries: Claiming Tomorrow
Entering the post-decade mark, Harvard Arab Weekend is at a critical time where it is both continuing its legacy of delivering nuanced and substantive discussion on the Arab World and reimagining its vision towards the future. Our aim with this theme is to combat discriminatory and reductive imagination surrounding the Arab World that diminishes it to a geography of violence and failure. Hence, we invite all Harvard students and alumni to curate stimulating panels that highlight the geographical diversity of our region, focusing on our multitude of experiences and individual pioneers from North Africa and the Sudan, to the Levant and the Arabian Peninsula and various locales in the diaspora. Through your various panels, we invite you to demonstrate the ways our region is shaped and imagined by young pioneers like you. We encourage you to come up with inspiring, new and diverse panels in the field of art, culture, politics, science and health, technology and any domain you see fit. Your work at Harvard inspires many individuals across the globe and the panels are a space for you to bring who inspires you. Nuanced conference discussions have always been our strength because the ideas come from you. We look forward to showcasing your ideas for the 2017 conference!
Note: Knowledge of Arabic is in no way necessary to apply to HAW. Available positions include Operations, Marketing, Finances, Panels, HAWtalks and Debates, and Networking Events teams.
