Susan Ossman

Susan Ossman has explored media, mobility, aesthetics, gender, and politics in sites that span North Africa, Europe, North America, and the Middle East. Her ethnography and analyses of globalization are related to her personal experience of international migration and her practice as an artist. Her books include Three Faces of Beauty: Casablanca, Paris, Cairo (Duke, 2002) and Picturing Casablanca: Portraits of Power in a Modern City (California, 1994). Her latest is Moving Matters: Paths of Serial Migration (Stanford, 2013). She teaches at UC Riverside, where she runs the Global Studies program.
