Dr. Lila Sharif is a creative writer, researcher, and assistant professor at the School of Social Transformation at Arizona State University. She is currently writing a book about the ways in which fair trade economies, settler colonialism, environmental destruction, and storytelling converge at Palestine’s historic olive tree, which has been harvested by Palestinians for over 6,000 years.

Sharif is a co-founding member of the Critical Refugee Studies Collective and of the Palestinian Feminist Collective. She is the first Palestinian to earn a Ph.D. in ethnic studies. She holds a dual PhD in Sociology and Ethnic Studies.

Cosponsored by the Humanities Institute and the Department of Indigenous Studies.
