Lara AlMalakeh · December, 2016

I hold a MA in Comparative Cultural Analysis, a Post Graduate certificate in Translation and a Bachelor in Fine Arts. I haven't lived in my home country for over a decade, and now I'm not even sure where home is. The flames that have been eating up the Middle East forced me out of the comfort of ignorance and indifference into the realms of involvement and activism.
I enjoy writing, and to me translation is a form of it. I am interested in documentaries as ways of cultural manifestation, especially those coming from the conflict in Syria. Also certain topics have become pressing priorities, such as digital rights, combating surveillance and ensuring technology is an empowering tool rather than an enabler of further exclusion and polarization.
