The following list includes faculty grants only. Graduate student grants are now handled exclusively by Dr. Amr Shaarawi, Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies. Please contact Dr. Shaarawi’s office for news about the status of applications for Graduate Student Grants.

In some cases, adjustments have been made to the requested budgets; please do not assume that you have received the full amount requested.

My office will process the checks for the following grants as quickly as we can, but please allow some time for this to happen, since there is a very heavy workload for my assistant (Nancy Wadie) once the grant decisions are made.

Alif 31

April 16th, 2011

Alif 31, "The Other Americas," has just been published.  Ferial Ghazoul (ECLT) is the journal's founding Editor, and Ira Dworkin (ECLT) is the Guest Editor of this special issue. Two AUC faculty members contributed articles:

  • Yasmine Motawy (Rhetoric and Composition), "First Day at School: The Experience of Muslim Children at American Schools as Represented in Three Picture Books"
  • Tahia Abdel Nasser (ECLT), "The Arabic Archive of Magic Realism"

Also, Mark Westmoreland (SAPE) contributed to the interview with Annemarie Jacir. And three additional AUC graduates have work featured in the journal: 

  • Marwa Elnaggar (MA 2001): Fantasia and Ethnic Responsibility in Autobiographical Writing: The Woman Warrior
  • Areeg Ibrahim (MA 1995): Minority Theater and Literature of the Oppressed: Cherríe Moraga’s Watsonville
  • Waïl S. Hassan (MA 1990): Arab-Brazilian Literature: Alberto Mussa’s Arabian Ode and South-South Dialogue

Alif is for sale at the AUC Press Bookstore.

This post contains the list of successful Faculty Support Grant applications for the February application cycle. (Anyone interested in the results of a student grant application should contact me directly.)

AUC is proud of its Faculty Support Grant program, which ranks among the most generous of any university in the world. In addition to looking for your own grant on the list below, please take a few minutes to read through some of the other interesting research topics and conference trips of your AUC colleagues. Enhancing mutual recognition of faculty research is one of the motivations for listing successful grant applicants here in the Bulletin.

If you see any mistaken information in the list, including minor spelling errors in any names, please contact me immediately at gharman@aucegypt.edu. We aspire to have a completely accurate list for each grant cycle.

Official letters of approval will be sent to everyone shortly. However, please note the following two points:

1. My assistant, Nancy, has been asked to help organize the March 31 Commencement Ceremony, and this needs to be her top priority at the moment. This could lead to delays of several days in processing your grant letters.

2. At the request of the Payroll Office, we will no longer be sending approval letters for Conference Grants that have been approved “pending acceptance of paper.” The new policy is that we need to see your acceptance letter from the conference before issuing the approval letter, or at least see your name on the official conference schedule.
