About the speaker
Whose voice do you hear when you look at an image? Yazan Kopty is a writer, oral historian, and National Geographic Explorer based in Washington D.C. His work centers around the acts of listening and narrating, focusing especially on memory as resistance and community-sourced history. He is currently the lead investigator of Imagining the Holy, a research project that seeks to examine and connect thousands of images of historic Palestine from the National Geographic Society archive with Palestinian community elders, cultural heritage experts, and field researchers to add new layers of indigenous narrative and knowledge to the images.
