Welcome to another Chapter of The Nerdiest Show on the Internet: A Glorified Books Received List!

This is Chapter 1 from Episode 4 of the show, featuring Natalie Khazaal’s “Pretty Liar: Television, Language, and Gender in Wartime Lebanon” (Syracuse University Press 2018).

The show is hosted by Bassam Haddad and Nadya Sbaiti, with regular guests Hatim El-HibriAbdullah Al-ArianZiad Abu-RishNoura Erakat, and others.

This is NOT a book review show!

The Nerdiest Show (TNS) features researchers talking about books received at the desk of the Arab Studies Journal and Jadaliyya. Lightheartedly, we discuss each book in five minutes or so, including the author, title, table of contents, praise on the back cover, and the books’ pedagogical utility.

Tune in for a thoroughly nerdy affair and don’t tell anyone you’re doin’ it.
