    Prologue and Epilogue: Arab Feminism Past and Present is an art exhibition on the theme of Arab feminism and its impact on Arab women artists. Curated by Sunbula: Arab Feminists for Change, this exhibition highlights Arab/Arab American women artists in California. Arab and Arab American women make a sizable community in the US. Yet, Arab feminism is rarely visible in American culture and excluded from public discussion, dialogue and decision-making. This exhibition will promote knowledge by and about Arab and Arab American feminists that is not disguised by archaic Orientalists and patronizing discourses. Prologue and Epilogue is a multi-disciplinary visual presentation that consists of sculpture, painting, installation, live poetry reading, and photography engaging Arab/Arab American women artists in an intergenerational, creative dialogue about issues addressing Arab feminisms.

    Speakers Bio:
    Dr.Azadeh Tabazadeh ’s outstanding research and discoveries have made significant contributions to the field of atmospheric science and have made her a highly recognized member of the international science community. She immigrated to the United States in 1982.As a young girl she was fascinated by the wonders of chemical science and pursued her education in this field. She first came to the science community ’s attention through her graduate work in atmospheric science at UCLA under the supervision of Howard Reiss and Rich Turco where she explored the role of volcanic eruptions in injecting chlorine compounds into the stratosphere. The results of her research ended twenty years of debate about this subject. Dr. Tabazadeh earned her Ph.D. in physical science from UCLA in 1994 and began to work at the NASA Ames Research Center as a post-doctoral fellow. In 1997, she joined NASA as a Physical Scientist in the Atmospheric Physics Branch. Currently, she is an Associate Professor jointly with Geophysics and the Civil and Environmental Engineering Departments at Stanford University.
    Dr. Tabazadeh ’s works have been revolutionary in the fields of geophysics, physical chemistry, and atmospheric science. She has written numerous research papers as the principal investigator, all of which have been published in prestigious science journals. In the cover story of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (2002,No.99), Dr. Tabazadeh presented for the first time the results of her research on the correlation between volcanic activity and the ozone hole, namely that if a period of high volcanic activity on Earth coincides with a series of cold winters in the Arctic, then a springtime Arctic ozone hole may reappear for a number of consecutive years. Her most recent work on the connection between ozone depletion and global warming is challenging widely held views in stratospheric science.
    Dr. Tabazadeh is recipient of many awards including the American Geophysics Union ’s medal in 2001.She was the 1999 recipient of the “Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers.(This is the highest honor bestowed by the United States government on outstanding scientists and engineers in their early career.) In the citation of this award, Dr. Tabazadeh is recognized for her pioneering development of theoretical techniques to simulate the formation of chemically and climatically important aerosol particles in the Earth ’s atmosphere. Dr. Tabazadeh works with a broad array of scientists, universities and scientific organizations such as UCLA, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Max Plank Institute, and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
