Hisham Bizri, Faculty Fellow, Spring 2006

Hisham Bizri (Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature, CLA)

Committed to making cinema with which both authors and viewers can relentlessly examine themselves as persons, Professor Bizri completed work on his film script titled Cairo, which deals with the social, aesthetic, and personal lives of Cairenes. The film was readied for production in 2007 and was completed as Cairo Psalm (2008). In 2007, Bizri was awarded a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship for “exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts.”
