 Hala_CA_1Hala is a Assistant Professor of Arabic and has taught elementary and secondary level students.  She has also privately tutored Modern Standard and colloquial Arabic for all levels of students from diverse backgrounds for several years.

As a librarian, Hala has worked as a cataloger at Rutgers University libraries.  Working for more than ten years in an academic research library setting has given her a remarkable knowledge of natural language, structure and semantics through cataloging monographs and videos in Middle Eastern languages, such as Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Urdu, and in Yiddish.

Hala has an interest in the literature and culture of Palestine in the 20th century from three different locations, inside Israel, occupied territories, and from the Palestinian Diaspora in the Middle East.  In addition, Hala has an interest in developing the collection of Middle Eastern resources at Rutgers' libraries.   She has created a pathfinder and a collection development policy for the Arabic collection, which supports and promotes the rapidly growing program in Arabic language in the AMESALL Department.
