Fedwa Malti-Douglas

Professor Fedwa Malti-Douglas began her career in Middle Eastern studies, producing nine books in this area (two chosen for singular distinction) and over 80 articles. She has served on many boards (including editorial boards) and received numerous fellowships and endowed lectureships, as well as the 1997 Kuwait Prize for Arts and Letters and the 1998 Distinguished Scholar Award from the Dean for Women's Affairs at IU. Professor Malti-Douglas has recently broadened her intellectual interests. Hisland (SUNY Press, 1998) is a satirical novel of the academy. Her most recent book, The Starr Report Disrobed (Columbia University Press, 2000), links the interdisciplinary area of gender, sexuality, and the body with that of American legal and political narratives.

Her current research includes work in Europe and Latin America as well as the United States, as it continues her interest in visual and verbal narratives. Professor Malti-Douglas was selected for membership in the American Philosophical Society, the oldest learned society in the country. She was only the fourth IU faculty member to receive this award. In the fall of 2004 she was inducted into the society with professor and author Noam Chomsky, and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Steven Breyer. The American Philosophical Society was founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1743.

Dr. Malti-Douglas also served as the Editor-in-Chief of a four-volume Encyclopaedia of Sex and Gender for MacMillian.

She is married to Allen Douglas.  Allen Douglas is Professor of West European Studies and History at Indiana University, Bloomington. His previous books include "L'ideologie par la bande "(with F. Malti-Douglas, 1987), "From Fascism to Libertarian Communism "(California, 1992), and "Arab Comic Strips "(with F. Malti-Douglas, 1994).
