Sayed Kashua joins us for a public conversation about his groundbreaking sitcom "Arab Labor," the first show (partly) in Arabic to become a hit on Israeli TV. Now in its fourth season, "Arab Labor" uses humor to address the problems faced by Arab Israelis. Also an acclaimed novelist and columnist, Kashua received the Prime Minister’s Prize in Literature in 2004. In 2009, he was the subject of the documentary "Forever Scared." This event will include a lecture, clips from the show, and a panel discussion with BU Professors Margaret Litvin and Michael Loman.
