Mostafa Heddaya

Department of Art and Archaeology

Mostafa Heddaya is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Art and Archaeology, where his principal subfields are the histories of African art and modernism. His project for the fellowship in the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Humanities is broadly concerned with the experiential and material dimensions of comparison and their relation to concepts of similitude, with attention to modern and modernist visual contexts. This interest follows in part from a symposium, Fake Friends, that he co-organized in 2018 at Princeton and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia. Before coming to Princeton, he worked as a writer and editor in New York and is a regular contributor to Art in America and other publications. He took his B.A. from Dartmouth College with concentrations in Government (comparative politics and political economy), Arabic Literature, and French.
