The Guardian Higher Education Network has just revealed the shortlist for this year’s Inspiring Leader award. Professor Karma Nabulsi, Fellow and Tutor in Politics at St Edmund Hall, is one of the five people selected by a judging panel of experts from the university sector. The winner will be decided by a public vote and announced at the Guardian University Awards ceremony in London on 29 March.
The Guardian’s website explains that: “This award honours a leader who has brought out the best in their team and achieved exceptional results. They champion innovation and collaboration, deliver real change, and inspire the higher education community.”
The judges said of Karma: “Without her patience, dedication and commitment the experiences of numerous students at Oxford and elsewhere would have been immeasurably poorer. She avoids all self-celebration, but it is hard to imagine a more worthy recipient.”
Karma lectures on social movements and philosophies of war and peace to students in Oxford’s Department of Politics and International Relations, where she is currently Director of Undergraduate Studies. She is an Oxford UCU (University and College Union) equalities officer, and a member of the staff BME network. She recently directed ‘The Palestinian Revolution’, a bilingual Arabic-English digital teaching resource exploring Palestinian revolutionary thought and practice in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Sponsored by the British Academy, the endeavour was a collaboration with universities, institutes and museums across the global south specialising in anti-colonial history.
