Dr. Natalie Khazaal (PhD, UCLA) is an Assistant Professor at Georgia Institute of Technology and an American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) fellow for her work on Arab atheists. She studies the links among disenfranchisement, media, and language. Among her co-authored publications on critical animal studies are articles on speciesism in the US and Spanish media and EU policy on vivisection, as well as her co-edited volume that shows how we can bend the arc of the moral universe toward justice for human and nonhuman refugees and migrants called “Like an Animal”: Critical Animal Studies Perspectives on Borders, Displacement, and Othering (Brill, 2020). Dr. Khazaal is the author of Pretty Liar: Television, Language, and Gender in Wartime Lebanon (Syracuse, 2018), which shows how Lebanese people demanded responsive media at times of unrest and deep social divisions, and a contributor for Global Media and Strategic Narratives of Contested Democracy (Routledge, 2019).

Dr. Khazaal is on the advisory board of Ideas Beyond Borders, an organization that promotes the free exchange of ideas and defends human rights from extremists and authoritarian regimes in the Arab world; she also served as the founding faculty advisor to the first Texas chapter of No Lost Generation—a student initiative for global refugee/migrant crisis relief efforts, and she was nominated for the “Achievements in Climate and Inclusion” (ACI) 2019 award at Texas A&M University for encouraging and facilitating more inclusive and welcoming climate for all.
