Khalili is a Professor of International Politics at Queen Mary University of London, and the author of Heroes and Martyrs of Palestine(Cambridge, 2007) and Time in the Shadows: Confinement in Counterinsurgencies (Stanford, 2013). Her Sinews of War and Trade, on the politics of maritime infrastructures, is published by Verso. Focusing on the tanker terminals of the Arabian Peninsula since the 1930s and the subsequent burgeoning of tanker-ships plying the trade between the Peninsula and the rest of the world, Khalili will illuminate the radical changes in political economy, labor, law, and production the specificities of tanker trade has wrought.

— Harvard Graduate School of Design has organized a series of virtual public lectures across the month of April, an effort toward sharing and stoking design discourse amid today’s almost-entirely digital context. GSD faculty including Dan D’Oca, Oana Stănescu, Jenny French, and David Moreno Mateos will offer looks into their ongoing and upcoming design preoccupations, while voices from outside the school bring welcomed insights and dialogue.
The GSD’s series of talks and webinars will be broadcast to our audiences via Zoom and live-streamed to the GSD’s Facebook page. Only viewers who are attending the lecture via Zoom will be able to submit questions for the Q+A. Zoom viewers must register to attend each lecture via the respective lecture’s webpage, available below; once registered, guests will be provided with a link to join the lecture via Zoom.
