Hind Zahour is working with two faculty advisers: Atalia Omer and Rev. Paul Kollman, CSC. With Professor Omer, her research will be focused on compiling bibliographies related to counter-terrorism and peacemaking in Africa and the Middle East with an emphasis on the Palestinian and Israeli conflict. She will also work on transcribing, translating, and annotating scholarly works and media coverages.
With Professor Kollman, Zahour’s research will be focused on the translation of missionary journals in Africa from French to English. This is to advance the professor’s book on the history of Catholic missionary evangelization in eastern Africa, and the journals in question were written by the Missionaries of Africa (commonly known as the “White Fathers,” les Pères Blancs) at some of their early missions in Uganda.
