Robert Azzi

Robert Azzi will present a talk titled "The Other: To Be or Not To Be." about identity and Islam and a bout being American-Arab Muslim in America.

Azzi, a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University, photographer, writer, consultant and advisor on Middle East issues born and raised in Manchester, New Hampshire. He has spent most of his professional life as a photojournalist in the Middle East and while based in Beirut, Lebanon, his work appeared in Time, Newsweek, National Geographic, and Paris Match. He writes not to convince people of the “rightness” of his positions but because he believes that an awareness of the Other’s narrative enhances America's security. "I want to start a conversation.”
