Dearborn Open Mic – Trans Revolution -Syria in the Hearts of the Diaspora by Prof. Hani Bawardi

Hani Bawardi is Associate Professor of History in the Department of Social Sciences, and principal member of the Center of Arab American Studies at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. He is the author of The Making of Arab Americans: From Syrian Nationalism to U.S. Citizenship. Bawardi has amassed a sizable private collection of manuscripts, and established oral history archives on Arab immigrants from the turn of the nineteenth century at the libraries of University of Michigan, Flint and Dearborn. Bawardi’s private papers have the most complete documentation of the activities of four major immigrant political organizations prior to WWII, as well as the personal papers and letters of seminal thinkers and writers including Mikhail Naimy, Hajj Amin al-Husseini, and their contemporaries in the US. Currently, Dr. Bawardi is researching his next book on Arab American advocacy and organizations from 1951 to the present, and editing two Arabic language volumes in preparation for translating them.
